Shoalia

Population159 million

CurrencyShoalian unit
AnimalShoalian matamata

The Republic of Shoalia is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 159 million Shoalians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 50.6%.

The Shoalian economy, worth 8.42 trillion Shoalian units a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,954 Shoalian units, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Shoalian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shoalia's national animal is the Shoalian matamata, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shoalia is ranked 15,496th in the world and 37th in Pacifica for Highest Drug Use, scoring 103.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
