The United Socialist States of Schirmeria is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 819 million Schirmerians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schirm City. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Schirmerian economy, worth 87.6 trillion rops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 106,974 rops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, organ donation rates have hit a new low, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown. Schirmeria's national animal is the Rufous Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Schirmeria is ranked 12,383rd in the world and 64th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 83.97 on the Human Development Index.
