Ramalia Shanatopian

Population4.887 billion

LeaderHenry Blairgowrie


The Republic of Ramalia Shanatopian is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Henry Blairgowrie with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 4.887 billion Ramalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kronburgh. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ramalian economy, worth 871 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 178,414 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ramalia Shanatopian's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, handling people's data is proving an immersive experience, and burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ramalia Shanatopian's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox.

Ramalia Shanatopian is ranked 205,011th in the world and 739th in Europeia for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -5.1 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
