The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 12.55 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.

Nudity is frowned upon, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 60th in Wysteria and 19,659th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 70 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
