Land Without Shrimp

Population9.278 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Nuclear Apocalypse of Land Without Shrimp is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.278 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 tiny government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Land Without Shrimpian economy, worth a remarkable 3,078 trillion kittens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 331,825 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for vampyre sacrifices, and organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous. Crime is totally unknown. Land Without Shrimp's national animal is the vampyre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land Without Shrimp is ranked 1,598th in the world and 50th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 194,803.21 Standard Monetary Units.
