The Republic of Shanzie is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mohammad with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, state-planned economy, and enslaved workforce. The compassionate, devout population of 2.517 billion Shanzieans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Shanziean economy, worth 105 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 41,864 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, the last thing Shanziean soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Eagle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shanzie's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islamic temple of Krishna in christ.

Shanzie is ranked 34,835th in the world and 82nd in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,687.19 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
