Location: The SOP
The Constitutional Monarchy of Shellbellbee is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.021 billion Shellbellbeeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DeadRoses. The average income tax rate is 63%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
The Federal Council of Shellbellbee has been announced as the new Head of State, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shellbellbee's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Shell.
