The Kingdom of Shadeth is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 263 million Shadethians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Shadethian economy, worth 17.5 trillion Gils a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,356 Gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, a government program is underway to revitalize Shadeth's beaches, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadeth's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
