Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Forest of Shirakahn is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.811 billion Shirakahnians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The large but stagnant Shirakahnian economy, worth 302 trillion happinesses of all a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,003 happinesses of all, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, dinosaur breeders have a yabba-dabba-doo gay old time in Shirakahn, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown. Shirakahn's national animal is the freedom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirakahn is ranked 160,117th in the world and 4,860th in Lazarus for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -33.87 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
