The Republic of Shanzie is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mohammad with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The devout population of 1.74 billion Shanzieans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Shanziean economy, worth 41.2 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 23,698 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments, the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and in court almost every witness is a hostile witness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 38,966th in the world and 57th in The Western Isles for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.91 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
