The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by O Great One with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.899 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 72%, 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.

A government program is underway to revitalize Shunnach's beaches, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, the Shunnach Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. 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 45th in Wysteria and 5,218th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 242 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
