Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queendom of Shirakumo is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.36 billion Shirakumoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Shirakumoan economy, worth 68.4 trillion LOCS a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,289 LOCS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, the government is giving peace a chance, anti-government web sites are springing up, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shirakumo's national animal is the cockatoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirakumo is ranked 115,196th in the world and 1st in h plus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36.89 on the Rand Index.
