Land Without Shrimp

Population7.253 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Dazzling Glory of Land Without Shrimp is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.253 billion scoobies hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. The average income tax rate is 3.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Land Without Shrimpian economy, worth a remarkable 2,344 trillion kittens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 323,284 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, the latest political memes depict Buffy Summers as an overly-choreographed robot, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. 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 9,373rd in the world and 316th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,028.38 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
