The Constitutional monarchy of Sharktail is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tengku Hazim with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The hard-working population of 10.211 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 508 trillion ringgits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,773 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 Tengku Hazim'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 262,776th in the world and 24th in Mandalanusa for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -29.14 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
