Population6.693 billion



The Republic of Shaor is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 6.693 billion Shaoris enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maar. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaorian economy, worth 821 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,727 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", the "daily grind" consists of levelling up in tedious video games, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaor's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kobolian.

Shaor is ranked 195,509th in the world and 1,117th in Europe for Most Conservative, scoring 27.79 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
