OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Sheradia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Thomas Richmond with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.489 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.

Sheradia's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. 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 27th in the Pacific and 1,492nd in the world for Best Weather, with 362 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
