The Grey Havens of Shaizan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eldar Council with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.756 billion Elves 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valinor. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaizanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,665 trillion Castars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 226,758 Castars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The little guy plays a big role in Shaizanian politics, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaizan's national animal is the Great Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Iluvatar.

Shaizan is ranked 249,093rd in the world and 499th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -15.96 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
