“Group hugs are now mandatory, at noon each day” Supreme Shifter

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Peaceful Conglomerate of Shiftierier is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Shifter with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.558 billion Shifties love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shift-Key. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.
The all-consuming Shiftie economy, worth 818 trillion Fish a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,811 Fish, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Moonshine has made a resurgence, some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, posters on 'Shiftie Values' advise against being proud of Shiftierier, and daring to agree with another politician is grounds for instant dismissal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shiftierier's national animal is the HE-Grenade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fishing.
