The Anu Nuva Republic of Sheariliik is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zi3rt with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 17.472 billion Tribals are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Environment, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lylspyn. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Nuvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,399 trillion Bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,345 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, birth rates have hit an all-time low, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Uirsaitse.
