Shiver Star

Population138 million


The Theocracy of Shiver Star is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 138 million カービィ live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Public Transport, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The strong カービィ economy, worth 5.11 trillion ✝️s a year, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 37,061 ✝️s, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 260,990 per year while the poor average 1,782, a ratio of 146 to 1.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Shiver Star's national animal is the ✝️, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Shiver Star is ranked 20,000th in the world and 2nd in Kirby for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 111.11 on the Hayek Index.
