The Commonwealth of Shattered Cultures is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Count Blink-a-lot with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.981 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are secondary priorities. 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.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, abortions are routinely performed in Shattered Cultures's hospitals, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, and citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys. 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 43rd in Balder and 2,028th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 56 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
