The Theocracy of Da Shen is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its fear of technology, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.046 billion Da Shenians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Basilsburg. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Da Shenian economy, worth 77.8 trillion drachmas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,377 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bike rage is all the rage, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, Orthodox Christianity has been named as Da Shen's national religion, and the judicial system legislates morality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Da Shen's national animal is the lamb, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Da Shen is ranked 12,248th in the world and 10th in Hiyamashu for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 2 valid endorsements.
