The Corporation of Shigonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mr CEO with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.335 billion workers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.
The frighteningly efficient worker economy, worth 181 trillion work hours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 136,113 work hours, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 503,094 per year while the poor average 25,958, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.
Personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, getting a blood transfusion from a worker entitles a foreigner to citizenship, a The North Pacific Tourist Association survey has rated Shigonia #1 for number twos, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shigonia's national animal is the robot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shigoniaism.
