Great Sheriffdom

CapitalGreater Imperium

AnimalTuxedo cat

The Left-wing Paradice of Great Sheriffdom is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sheriff with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.104 billion Sheriffdomians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Imperium. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheriffdom economy, worth 949 trillion Bytes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,126 Bytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and Greater Imperium has become the number one destination for urban exploration in the West Pacific. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Sheriffdom's national animal is the Tuxedo cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Sheriffdom is ranked 30,679th in the world and 473rd in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,170.47 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
