The Allied States of Musselshell is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Cobra Commander with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.409 billion Shellians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palladium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Musselshellian economy, worth 332 trillion Zirks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,860 Zirks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 582,498 per year while the poor average 21,109, a ratio of 27.6 to 1.
There's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, Musselshellian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Musselshell's national animal is the Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hooptyism.
