The Seven Shed Skins

The Principality of The Seven Shed Skins is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 494 million Seven Shed Skinsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Seven Shed Skinsian economy, worth 56.8 trillion light-hours 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 115,058 light-hours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seven Shed Skins's national animal is the snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Seven Shed Skins is ranked 35,463rd in the world and 1,517th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 720.38 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
