The United Socialist States of Sheradia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Thomas Richmond with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.464 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 97%. 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.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, artists are pillars of society, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, and Sheradia's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. 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 3,947th in the Pacific and 110,229th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -8 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
