The Theocracy of Shamayin is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Shophet with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, flagrant waste-dumping, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 10.147 billion Shamayinians 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 tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jerusalem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Shamayinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,607 trillion Shekels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 158,411 Shekels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 515,287 per year while the poor average 36,691, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, and a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Shamayinian as 'your finger, you fool'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shamayin's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Judaism.

Shamayin is ranked 774th in the world and 2nd in The Snowy Peninsula for Most Devout, with 11,289.84 Prayers Per Hour.
