The Constitutional Monarchy of Shellbellbee is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.211 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DeadRoses. The average income tax rate is 53%, 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.
People have to sneak out of the country in order to have sex, the Federal Council of Shellbellbee has been announced as the new Head of State, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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.
