The Commonwealth of Shattered Cultures is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Count Blink-a-lot with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.018 billion Shattered Culturesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dothallow. The average income tax rate is 74%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Shattered Cultures's radio stations, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shattered Cultures's national animal is the pokemon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the casino token.

Shattered Cultures is ranked 2,289th in Balder and 87,541st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.091 Stalins.
