Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Sheradia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Thomas Richmond with a fair hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.737 billion Sheradians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free Haven. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The strong Sheradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,927 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,463 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity, board shorts have replaced board rooms, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheradia's national animal is the Teddy Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sheradia is ranked 181,564th in the world and 12,613th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -25.68 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
