We welcome The Queendom of Shakibings Land (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Shakibings+Land), as the 246th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Queendom of ShakiBings Land is a small, pleasant nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18 million 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Public Transport, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22%. A healthy private sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Uranium Mining.
Cars are banned, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, education and welfare spending are on the rise, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is a problem. ShakiBings Land's national animal is the hyena and its currency is the bing.
