The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with an iron fist, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.696 billion Jungles 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.

Citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. 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 112th in Wysteria and 77,656th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 46 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
