The Planetary Confederation of Shanix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksander Zek with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.7 billion Shanixians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gullige. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shanixin economy, worth a remarkable 4,753 trillion SSICS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 200,556 SSICS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Shanixin satellites can detect it, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shanix's national animal is the Zug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Shanix is ranked 177,119th in the world and 1st in Shanixian Federal Control for Fattest Citizens, with 9.11 Obesity Rate.
