Shangri-La Valley

Population1.002 billion

CapitalDream City
LeaderLady Freya


The Community of Shangri-La Valley is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lady Freya with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls and smutty television. The compassionate population of 1.002 billion Shangri-La Valleyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dream City. The average income tax rate is 26.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Shangri-La Valleyian economy, worth 82.3 trillion Zuzzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,085 Zuzzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime is totally unknown. Shangri-La Valley's national animal is the Serval, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shangri-La Valley is ranked 37,614th in the world and 2,174th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 62.31 on the Human Development Index.
