The Sheldonist Republic of Sheldony is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sheldor with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 5.723 billion Sheldonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government 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 sizeable but stagnant Sheldonian economy, worth 67.6 trillion Sheldeuros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 11,806 Sheldeuros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, much of Sheldony's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, 90% of active duty SAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime 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.
