The Empire of Sharnath is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed population of 677 million Sharnathians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sharnathian economy, worth 64.7 trillion Energy Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is 95,615 Energy Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who have lived their entire lives in Sharnath are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, and all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sharnath's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sharnath is ranked 47,992nd in the world and 2,141st in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 101.54 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
