The Queen regnant's State of Shamblia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen regnant Aquitaina Nikolaevna with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.367 billion Shamblians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oldtown. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shamblian economy, worth 460 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,810 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shamblia's national animal is the Humpback whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Shamblia is ranked 147,382nd in the world and 37th in RHINIA for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 43.54 Workforce Participation Rate.
