Land Without Shrimp

Population8.773 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Holy Apocalypse of Land Without Shrimp is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.773 billion scoobies 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. The average income tax rate is 37.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Land Without Shrimpian economy, worth a remarkable 2,954 trillion kittens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 336,796 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Land Without Shrimp. Crime is totally unknown. Land Without Shrimp's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land Without Shrimp is ranked 167,089th in the world and 7,445th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 9.81 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
