Land Without Shrimp

Population10.623 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Springtime Wonder of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.623 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 tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. The average income tax rate is 4.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scooby economy, worth a remarkable 3,787 trillion kittens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 356,527 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The new classical revitalization of Sunnydale is expected to be completed sometime in the next century, Scooby junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. 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 1,680th in the world and 57th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.94 on the Human Development Index.
