Did you know ...

Until as recently as 1997, it was illegal for any Shalampaxian to work more than 27 hours in a week. It was felt that if someone worked longer it would make other Shalampaxians look bad. Recognizing the foolishness of this productivity-killing law, on September 3, 1997 the Shalampax parliament voted unanimously to strike down the old law and replace it with one limiting work to a maximum of 13 hours a week.

We Shalampaxians take some, but not much pride in our flag. It was designed in 1967 as a nursery school arts & crafts project. The designer never made it past kindergarten.

The happy face on a blue background in the upper half of the flag represents our joy on fair weather days, which are exceptionally rare. The lower frowning face on a green background represents our remorse over the frequent occasions when the sea inundates our little-beloved island. The flag is flown somewhat proudly and is worn on clothing available, at popular prices, from the Shalampaxian Web store.

It is illegal to wipe your bottom with the flag, but pretty much anything else goes.

Prior to 1967 the Shalampaxian flag was a dishrag that washed up on our rocky shore.
