The United Pirate Clans of Shaggenheim is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 618 million Shaggs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gayzone. The average income tax rate is 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shaggilicios economy, worth 79.7 trillion E-Keks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 129,044 E-Keks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, facial disfigurement is a leading cause of supervillainy, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests. Crime is relatively low. Shaggenheim's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shaggenheim is ranked 7,654th in the world and 1st in Milfgard for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 90,460.24 Standard Monetary Units.
