The Democratic Republic of Shaktrim is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.555 billion Shaktrimians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Shaktrimian economy, worth 21.4 trillion Rupyes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 13,757 Rupyes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, and it is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaktrim's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
