OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Provisional Government of Shinbone is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the High Admiral with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 11.509 billion Shins enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadaloo. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Shin economy, worth a remarkable 2,144 trillion taels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 186,343 taels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and billions of taels are spent to take high-quality photos of the Capybara Nebula. Crime is totally unknown. Shinbone's national animal is the capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Uchchhishta Ganapatya.

Shinbone is ranked 1,629th in the world and 2nd in Africa for Most Developed, scoring 97.96 on the Human Development Index.
