Land Without Shrimp

Population10.458 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Springtime Beauty of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.458 billion Scooby Gang hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. The average income tax rate is 3.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scooby economy, worth a remarkable 3,699 trillion kittens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 353,732 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, Buffy Summers can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. 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 7,405th in the world and 249th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,880.75 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
