Shampiumrn

The Republic of Shampiumrn is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.503 billion Shampiumrnians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 21.3%.

The powerhouse Shampiumrnian economy, worth 169 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,855 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes the property of the recently deceased, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shampiumrn's national animal is the trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shampiumrn is ranked 20,299th in the world and 2nd in Extalia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 237.34 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
