The Federation of Shagolaa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.847 billion Shagolaans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magnifique. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Shagolaan economy, worth 139 trillion Shagolaan francs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,341 Shagolaan francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Air Shagolaa is rumored to receive more government funding than the Shagolaan Air Force, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shagolaa's national animal is the Shiba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
