Using a new approximate analytic parameter-free proxy-SU(3) scheme, we make simple predictions of shape observables for deformed nuclei, namely gamma and beta deformation variables, the global feature of prolate dominance, and the locus of the prolate-oblate shape transition. The predictions are compared with empirical results.
