The Dictatorship of Shahrukh is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 411 million Rookians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Troll City. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Shahrukhian economy, worth 33.5 trillion Gamercoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 81,611 Gamercoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Shahrukh, and government employees from Shahrukh dominate international lumberjack competitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shahrukh's national animal is the Hummingbird.

Shahrukh is ranked 197,728th in the world and 7,358th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -104.55 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
