The Sultanate of Sharktail is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sultan Ahmad Ikram with an even hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working population of 6.987 billion Sharktailians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kota sultan. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sharktailian economy, worth 347 trillion ringgits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,769 ringgits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, the nation has a strict 'no marauding undead' law (Sharktail has found 1 easter egg), city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, and primary candidates are replaced if they fail to compliment Sultan Ahmad Ikram's hair. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sharktail's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is sunni islam.

Sharktail is ranked 72,806th in the world and 18th in Melayu Archipelago for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,577.78 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
