The Holy Empire of Great Shen is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its triple-decker prams, avowedly heterosexual populace, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 644 million Shenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sharanfo. The average income tax rate is 45.1%.

The powerhouse Great Shenian economy, worth 54.0 trillion Yuan a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,813 Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, and Great Shen successfully hosted the International Democratic Union Olympics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Shen's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Great Shen is ranked 136,811th in the world and 98th in International Democratic Union for Most Secular, with 14.12 Atheism Rate.
