The Kingdom of East Shetland is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 634 million East Shetlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glaschu r. The average income tax rate is 27.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse East Shetlandian economy, worth 51.4 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 81,066 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of East Shetland's radio stations, and gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Shetland's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Shetland is ranked 2,810th in the world and 31st in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,522.33 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
