The Dominion of Outer Shenendoah is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pawpaw Appalachia with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.892 billion Outer Shenendoahians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tom's Brook. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Outer Shenendoahian economy, worth 309 trillion shiny sea shells a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,624 shiny sea shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The tightness of border controls in Outer Shenendoah leave a little to be desired, citizens' names are redacted on their IDs for national security, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outer Shenendoah's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of the Eternal Grey Wolf.

Outer Shenendoah is ranked 8,503rd in the world and 530th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 198.67 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
