The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by O Great One with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.382 billion Macs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 61%, 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.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and cars are banned from built-up areas. 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 27th in Wysteria and 5,623rd in the world for Safest, scoring 459.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
