The Republic of Shao-Kal is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ian Blackwell with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.764 billion Kalians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abera. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Shao-Kalian economy, worth 241 trillion shards a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,216 shards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Kalians, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shao-Kal's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shao-Kal is ranked 202,197th in the world and 5th in Radio Dead Airheads for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.57 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
