Location: the West Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Republic of Shaqolandia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Dapaah with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.959 billion Asznees enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ofori City. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shaqolandian economy, worth 677 trillion Shaqolandian Scoopnums a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,530 Shaqolandian Scoopnums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, t-shirts displaying a photo of President Dapaah performing the Full-Monty are selling out, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child. Crime is totally unknown. Shaqolandia's national animal is the Furvius, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shaqolandia is ranked 12,109th in the world and 261st in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,308.98 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
