Land Without Shrimp

Population10.504 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Springtime Beauty of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.504 billion Scooby Gang hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scooby economy, worth a remarkable 3,724 trillion kittens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 354,557 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and it's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets. Crime is totally unknown. Land Without Shrimp's national animal is the vampyre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land Without Shrimp is ranked 3,383rd in the world and 67th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 3,724 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
