The Democratic Republic of Sharpknob is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 409 million Sharpknobians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 47.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sharpknobian economy, worth 13.8 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 33,756 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, and the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sharpknob's national animal is the raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sharpknob is ranked 97,675th in the world and 1st in The SBinalla Region for Most Stationary, with 79.1893937632 Days.
