The Grand Jurisprudence of Shamian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tarrin Kael with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.152 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 Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. 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 3,055 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 300,974 Taols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, there's never enough space in space, and citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm. 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 1,241st in the world and 22nd in The Communist Bloc for Most Cultured, scoring 294 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
