Millenium Shrimps

The Armed Republic of Millenium Shrimps is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 543 million Millenium Shrimpsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.1%.

The all-consuming Millenium Shrimpsian economy, worth 58.2 trillion baht a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 107,213 baht, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 791,678 per year while the poor average 4,373, a ratio of 181 to 1.

Children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, the fate of the world literally rests on Leader's fingers, contestants on Millenium Shrimps's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, and it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Millenium Shrimps's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Millenium Shrimps is ranked 183,490th in the world and 4th in Imperius for Most Average, scoring 20.12 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
