OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Sheradia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Thomas Richmond with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.121 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.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 32nd in the Pacific and 2,190th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,217.25 Net Tourists per hour.
