Population6.496 billion



The Republic of Shaor is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 6.496 billion Shaoris enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maar. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaorian economy, worth 790 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 121,616 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", the "daily grind" consists of levelling up in tedious video games, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaor's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kobolian.

Shaor is ranked 20,682nd in the world and 170th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,234.7 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
