The Grey Havens of Shaizan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eldar Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.807 billion Elves hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaizanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,152 trillion Castars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 246,145 Castars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. 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 3,480th in the world and 11th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 16,754.59 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
