East Shetland

Population2.102 billion

CapitalGlaschu r


The Kingdom of East Shetland is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.102 billion East Shetlandians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glaschu r. The average income tax rate is 55.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse East Shetlandian economy, worth 144 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 68,592 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pregnant women make easy targets, citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, the endangered saltwater humpback Unicorn is only seen in captivity programs, and proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Shetland's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Shetland is ranked 31,382nd in the world and 438th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 74.53 on the Human Development Index.
