Population6.371 billion



The Republic of Shaor is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 6.371 billion Shaoris enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maar. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaorian economy, worth 775 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 121,731 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large sections of Shaor have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaor's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kobolian.

Shaor is ranked 1,845th in the world and 32nd in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 407.46 Bank.
