The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.141 billion Macs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strathmungo. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

Suicide victims often leave behind cash to cover the cost of their fines, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shunnach's national animal is the feral cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the baw bee.

Shunnach is ranked 6th in Wysteria and 154th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 216 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
