OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Sheradia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Thomas Richmond with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.278 billion Sheradians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free Haven. The average income tax rate is 96%. 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.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, abortions are routinely performed in Sheradia's hospitals, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Sheradia. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the florin.

Sheradia is ranked 49th in the Pacific and 2,992nd in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 30 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
