The Republic of Sharpanistan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sharpshooter with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.579 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, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 2,051 trillion Shootmarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 270,711 Shootmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, and school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time. Crime is totally unknown. Sharpanistan's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sharpanistan is ranked 612th in the world and 5th in Canada for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 118 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
