Shattered States

Population40 million

AnimalBald Eagle

The Federal Republic of Shattered States is a small, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 40 million Shattered Statesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 13.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Shattered Statesian economy, worth 1.85 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,231 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, farting etiquette is taught in schools, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, and murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed. Crime is almost non-existent. Shattered States's national animal is the Bald Eagle.

Shattered States is ranked 156,210th in the world and 2nd in Memebois for Most Primitive, scoring -79.37 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
