The Seven Shed Skins

Population1.171 billion

CapitalNeapol Slithering
LeaderCrown Prince


The Principality of The Seven Shed Skins is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Crown Prince with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, ritual sacrifices, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.171 billion Seven Shed Skinsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neapol Slithering. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seven Shed Skinsian economy, worth 174 trillion light-hours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 148,847 light-hours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seven Shed Skins's national animal is the snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Seven Shed Skins is ranked 49,182nd in the world and 2,607th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
