The Refined High Class Society of Shlama is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jeff Goldblum with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 2.199 billion Shlamians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jurassic Park on Independence BLVD. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shlamese economy, worth 223 trillion Toppins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,440 Toppins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, they say that Shlamians made a dessert and called it peace, the nation has chosen not to live in interesting times, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Shlama's national animal is the Fat Lard Tina The Llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shlama is ranked 229,769th in the world and 9,365th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
