The Commonwealth of Central Shaneville is a massive, genial nation, ruled by John Poseidon with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 3.158 billion Central Shanevilleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shaneville. The average income tax rate is 79.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Central Shanevillean economy, worth 376 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 119,165 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, political candidates are regularly blocked for minor convictions from their teenage years, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Central Shaneville's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Aethiest.

Central Shaneville is ranked 10,354th in the world and 6th in Melayu Archipelago for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,162.01 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
