Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Forest of Shirakahn is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.334 billion Shirakahnians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Shirakahnian economy, worth 605 trillion happinesses of all a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 34,938 happinesses of all, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the government pours millions of happinesses of all into rehabilitation programs annually, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed. Crime is totally unknown. Shirakahn's national animal is the freedom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirakahn is ranked 175,684th in the world and 5,705th in Lazarus for Most Devout, with 3.81 Prayers Per Hour.
