The Queendom of Land With Lots of Shrimp is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Anya with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.788 billion vengeance demons live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of America. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse capitalist economy, worth 466 trillion holy crosses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 167,451 holy crosses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 970,753 per year while the poor average 13,718, a ratio of 70.8 to 1.

It's illegal to exterminate cockroaches, foreign despots proudly bandstand on capitalist airwaves, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Land With Lots of Shrimp's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Land With Lots of Shrimp is ranked 456th in the world and 20th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 430.2 Insults Per Minute.
