Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Forest of Shirakahn is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.871 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 219 trillion happinesses of all a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 12,260 happinesses of all, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shirakahnians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime is totally unknown. Shirakahn's national animal is the freedom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirakahn is ranked 84,389th in the world and 2,816th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 0.18 Stalins.
