Regional Influence: Sprat

Location: The North Pacific



Population597 million


The Democratic Republic of Shabot is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 597 million Shabotians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Shabotian economy, worth 58.5 trillion Hickles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 97,962 Hickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, it is common to see Maxémon Trainer listed on Shabotian resumés, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shabot's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shabot is ranked 158,739th in the world and 6,635th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 122.96 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
