Population293 million


The Kingdom of Shadeth is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 293 million Shadethians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Shadethian economy, worth 19.8 trillion Gils a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,499 Gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadeth's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shadeth is ranked 99,078th in the world and 3,808th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,822.63 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
