The Grand Jurisprudence of Shamian is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tarrin Kael with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.477 billion Shamanians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh-Morpork. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Shamianian economy, worth a remarkable 2,550 trillion Taols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 300,839 Taols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, and citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?". Crime is totally unknown. Shamian's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Jainism.
