The Republic of Sharpanistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sharpshooter with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.897 billion Sharpanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shoottawa. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sharpanistanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,080 trillion Shootmarks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 311,233 Shootmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, Sharpshooter's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and more citizens have access to Maxtopian Grass than clean drinking water. Crime is totally unknown. Sharpanistan's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sharpanistan is ranked 180th in the world and 3rd in Canada for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.9 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
