The Republic of Shaker is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Stella with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.445 billion Shakerites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shaker Heights. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Shakerite economy, worth 820 trillion dollars 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 150,668 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, Shaker successfully hosted the The Internationale Olympics, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaker's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shaker is ranked 240,160th in the world and 281st in The Internationale for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -24.62 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
