The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 12.59 billion 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, 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 66%, 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.

Cities are engulfed by smog, artists are pillars of society, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. 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 139th in Wysteria and 102,869th in the world for Best Weather, with -31 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
