The Republic of Shalampax has a Coat of Arms because we looked around and
saw that every other nation and many states, provinces, cities and even
a few not especially important families have coats of arms, so why not
us? What are we, chopped liver? OK, we didn't actually ask, "what
are we, chicken chopped liver," in precisely those words. In a land
where coconuts and fish are the only native foods, we hadn't heard of chicken
chopped liver until a few days ago, but you get the point.
The Coat of Arms of the Republic of Shalampax is the product of large dollops of thought, art, effort, time and money, not to mention dangerous quantities of beer. Click on the links below to learn about the deeper meanings of its constituent elements.
