The Corporation of Shigonia is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by The CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 800 million Shigonyanz are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shigonia LLC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Shigonyan economy, worth 93.8 trillion shigonian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 117,228 shigonian dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 427,002 per year while the poor average 22,875, a ratio of 18.7 to 1.
Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, schoolchildren's "what I did on my holidays" essays tend to be somewhat homogeneous, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shigonia's national animal is the catgirl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
