The Unclassified Territories of Sheariliik is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by a concerned third party with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.685 billion Tribals are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyl. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, Sheariliik has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheariliik's national animal is the shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, its national religion is the CCVP, and its currency is the Gigabyte coin.

Sheariliik is ranked 3rd in Viscaelia and 110,204th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -19 on the Hayek Index.
