Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Republic of Shieldholm is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ogrel MacPhereson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 14.07 billion Shieldholmians 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 relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phere. The average income tax rate is 25.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Shieldholmian economy, worth a remarkable 2,614 trillion Gold Standard Credits a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 185,820 Gold Standard Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, lending money has become a major liability, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shieldholm's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Mondain.

Shieldholm is ranked 163,607th in the world and 2nd in The Imperial Legion for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -20.69 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
