Cold Shivers

Population4.284 billion


The Borderlands of Cold Shivers is a massive, safe nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. The quiet, industrious population of 4.284 billion Cold Shiversians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 21.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Cold Shiversian economy, worth 187 trillion Deneroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,812 Deneroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cold Shivers's national animal is the Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cold Shivers is ranked 168,833rd in the world and 1,598th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
