The Republic of Shark isle is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Hugo Sanchez with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, devout population of 13.422 billion Shark isleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of paradise city. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shark islean economy, worth a remarkable 1,236 trillion doubloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 92,103 doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Shark islean grocery store, having skeletons in one's closet is no longer just a macabre idiom, and the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shark isle's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Shark isle is ranked 115,087th in the world and 29th in Greater Ixnay for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -2.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
