The United Socialist States of Shaleland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Big Bois with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.005 billion Shalics 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spine City. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Shalic economy, worth 68.4 trillion Pines a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 68,012 Pines, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, Big Bois has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, and the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaleland's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shaleland is ranked 131,550th in the world and 136th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Economic Output, with 68.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
