Shiggy Donatello

The Good Stuff of Shiggy Donatello is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Macintosh IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.558 billion Deloreans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Die Lit. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Delorean economy, worth a remarkable 3,050 trillion kids a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,006 kids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All recreational drugs are legal, write-in candidate 'Macintosh IV Sucks' is perennially popular, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shiggy Donatello's national animal is the lol, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Artman.

Shiggy Donatello is ranked 4,585th in the world and 15th in Texas for Highest Average Incomes, with 225,006.41 Standard Monetary Units.
