The Refined High Class Society of Shlama is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jeff Goldblum with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 2.211 billion Shlamians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jurassic Park on Independence BLVD. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shlamese economy, worth 223 trillion Toppins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,953 Toppins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is so apathetic that Shlamians can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, pros are the new cons, and citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Shlama's national animal is the Fat Lard Tina The Llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shlama is ranked 142,193rd in the world and 5,921st in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 571.03 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
