The Sheldonist Republic of Sheldony is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sheldor with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service. Its compassionate, cynical population of 3.536 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheldonia. The average income tax rate is 99%. 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.
Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Sheldony, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, and the SBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. 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, and its currency is the Sheldeuro.
