The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by O Great One with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.678 billion Macs 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 67%, 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.

The public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, organ donation rates have hit a new low, and the people of Shunnach are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes. 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 94th in Wysteria and 56,268th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 62 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
