Great Sheriffdom

LeaderGeneral Sheriffdom


The Empire of Great Sheriffdom is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Sheriffdom with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.242 billion Sheriffdomians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Imperium. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheriffdom economy, worth 626 trillion Bytes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 193,114 Bytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sheriffdom Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime is totally unknown. Great Sheriffdom's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Sheriffdom is ranked 17,330th in the world and 672nd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,600.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
