The Democratic Republic of Shambho is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working population of 864 million Shambhoans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 57.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shambhoan economy, worth 99.7 trillion Koris a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,351 Koris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, and annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shambho's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shambho is ranked 18,206th in the world and 551st in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,218.3 tourists per hour.
