Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population9.7 billion



The Kingdom of SirHardHead is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.7 billion SirHardHeadians 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 Smiles. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient SirHardHeadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,402 trillion Shlongs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,573 Shlongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, and the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SirHardHead's national animal is the Donkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

SirHardHead is ranked 9,471st in the world and 287th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,402 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
