The Syndicated Anarchic Regions of Shamian is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tarrin Kael with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.502 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, with Industry, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh-Morpork. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Shamianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,562 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 284,067 Taols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Otter Dung" has been declared a national treasure, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. 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.

Shamian is ranked 1,562nd in the world and 13th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 28,175.65 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
