The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.739 billion Jungles are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 68%, 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.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, families are only permitted to have one child, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. 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 158th in Wysteria and 114,802nd in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -13 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
