The Third Federal Republic of Shang Xian is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Li Xiamen with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.608 billion Shang Xianans 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hoheian. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shang Xianian economy, worth 286 trillion Xianan Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 178,359 Xianan Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, going on a diet invalidates your passport, a government program is underway to revitalize Shang Xian's beaches, and Shang Xian's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shang Xian's national animal is the Xianan Kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Xianism.

Shang Xian is ranked 68,371st in the world and 419th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,849.19 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
