The United States of Schantan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Deniz Han with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 2.072 billion Schantees enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coldharbour. The average income tax rate is 33.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Schantee economy, worth 158 trillion Shantee Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,732 Shantee Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Schantan's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tengriism.
