The Autocratic Stratocracy of Sharkdonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Joseph Builder II with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.909 billion Sharkdonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sharkdon. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sharkdonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,121 trillion Sharkdonian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 228,473 Sharkdonian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, Sharkdonians believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, and libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sharkdonia's national animal is the Red Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Kharistrisismn.

Sharkdonia is ranked 7,755th in the world and 24th in Anteria for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,254.1 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
