The Federation of Shagolaa is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 462 million Shagolaans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large 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 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shagolaan economy, worth 37.3 trillion Shagolaan francs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,806 Shagolaan francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

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. Shagolaa's national animal is the Shiba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shagolaa is ranked 46,273rd in the world and 498th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 80,806.57 Standard Monetary Units.
