The Left-wing Paradice of Great Sheriffdom is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sheriff with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.54 billion Sheriffdomians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Imperium. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheriffdom economy, worth a remarkable 1,034 trillion Bytes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,674 Bytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, children are raised bilingual from an early age, Greater Imperium has become the number one destination for urban exploration in the West Pacific, and programmers often reinvent the wheel. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Sheriffdom's national animal is the Tuxedo cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Sheriffdom is ranked 5,119th in the world and 100th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,678.37 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
