The Holy Empire of Shotokonia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 498 million Shotokonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katmalovoska. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Shotokonian economy, worth 31.9 trillion Chryptoes a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,983 Chryptoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, and cigarettes are dead-cheap. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shotokonia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
