The Federation of Shaone is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Fowler Merkle with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.06 billion Shoneans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Niston. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaonean economy, worth a remarkable 2,417 trillion Shonis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 266,861 Shonis, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shaone's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Shaone is ranked 11,732nd in the world and 690th in Balder for Highest Poor Incomes, with 88,216.37 Standard Monetary Units.
