Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Green Empire of Moose Shrubs is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Doofus McMoosus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 25.137 billion Meeseans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moose Central. The average income tax rate is 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Meese economy, worth a remarkable 3,298 trillion Irish gold coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 131,204 Irish gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangness and Sorcery, the nation's new monarch embarrasses himself during state visits, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, and the lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Moose Shrubs's national animal is the toofs, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Moose Shrubs is ranked 148,796th in the world and 223rd in Gay for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 10.29 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
