The Sheldonist Republic of Sheldony is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sheldor with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 5.491 billion Sheldonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheldonia. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.
The thriving Sheldonian economy, worth 792 trillion Sheldeuros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,297 Sheldeuros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheldony's national animal is the Axolotl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
