The United Pirate Clans of Shaggenheim is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 674 million Shaggs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gayzone. The average income tax rate is 31.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shaggilicios economy, worth 89.5 trillion E-Keks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 132,766 E-Keks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government defends a woman's right to choose, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, and enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shaggenheim's national animal is the War Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shaggenheim is ranked 30,421st in the world and 1st in Milfgard for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,203.63 Tourists Per Hour.
