The Republic of Shanarder is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its burgeoning tiger population. The cynical population of 848 million Shanarderians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 26.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Shanarderian economy, worth 29.4 trillion pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,623 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home, and elections have been outlawed. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shanarder's national animal is the tiger.

Shanarder is ranked 174,820th in the world and 11th in The Region of Warsaw for Healthiest Citizens, with 1 bananas ingested per day.
