The Sweltering Summer of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, otherworldly petting zoo, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.901 billion Scooby Gang hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Scooby economy, worth a remarkable 3,937 trillion kittens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 361,213 kittens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,345,000 per year while the poor average 68,089, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

Films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law. Crime is totally unknown. Land Without Shrimp's national animal is the vampyre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land Without Shrimp is ranked 227,004th in the world and 7,328th in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -1036.36 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
