“Courage in Compassion”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
|Capital||Hav - Manafoa|
The Silly lil Sass of Shoalia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 741 million Shoalians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hav - Manafoa. The average income tax rate is 53.5%.
The thriving Shoalian economy, worth 64.0 trillion Shoalian units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,411 Shoalian units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.
The navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, Shoalian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shoalia's national animal is the Shoalian matamata, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
