The Democratic Republic of Shabot is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 562 million Shabotians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Shabotian economy, worth 54.1 trillion Hickles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 96,205 Hickles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, the entire entry for Shabot in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and homophobia is off the menu. 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.
