Sandy Shoals

The Free Land of Sandy Shoals is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.929 billion Sandy Shoalsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Sandy Shoalsian economy, worth 35.9 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 12,254 Sand Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sandy Shoals's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sandy Shoals is ranked 17,879th in the world and 55th in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 113.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
