The Democratic Republic of Shabot is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 834 million Shabotians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Shabotian economy, worth 79.6 trillion Hickles a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is 95,423 Hickles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shabot's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
