The Kingdom of Shadeth is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 519 million Shadethians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Shadethian economy, worth 41.4 trillion Gils a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,700 Gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadeth's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
