The Republic of Shouhour is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 133 million Shouhourians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 14.5%.
The strong Shouhourian economy, worth 8.39 trillion Shouhouri dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,090 Shouhouri dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Shouhour City, economists claim no news is good news, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime is almost non-existent. Shouhour's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
