The Corporate Alliance of Shark Boy is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chief Executive Officer Of The State with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.771 billion Employees are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercenary R Us Coporate HQ. The average income tax rate is 24.8%.

The strong Employee economy, worth 94.5 trillion Latinums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 53,367 Latinums, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government spending has hit an all-time low, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and paraplegics are told to walk it off. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shark Boy's national animal is the Targ, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Shark Boy is ranked 63,208th in the world and 6th in The House at Pooh Corner for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,182.38 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
