Population1.16 billion


The Republic of Selhurstland is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.16 billion Selhurstlandians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Selhurstlandian economy, worth 26.9 trillion Zahas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 23,180 Zahas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, and most ambassadors from Selhurstland retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selhurstland's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Selhurstland is ranked 188,986th in the world and 4,940th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 34.6 billion Standard Monetary Units.
