Siobhan Marshall

Population11.216 billion


The Queen's State of Siobhan Marshall is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.216 billion Siobhan Marshallians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The powerhouse Siobhan Marshallian economy, worth 591 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 52,758 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 186,747 per year while the poor average 10,761, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller and voting is voluntary. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Siobhan Marshall's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Siobhan Marshall is ranked 147,903rd in the world and 31st in the Alliance Headquarters for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring zero on the Hickory Productivity Index.
