The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 14.034 billion Jungles 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 74%, 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.

Women are often jailed for failing to fetch their husband's slippers, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. 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 11th in Wysteria and 1,747th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 152 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
