The Incorporated States of Sharps inc is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Board with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, conspicuous electricity pylons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.106 billion Sharps incians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York City. The average income tax rate is 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sharps incian economy, worth a remarkable 1,933 trillion Stock shares a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 316,612 Stock shares, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The endangered saltwater humpback Bull is only seen in captivity programs, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, the doctor has cold hands, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sharps inc's national animal is the Bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Market Trends.

Sharps inc is ranked 161,253rd in the world and 5,428th in Lazarus for Most Primitive, scoring -724.42 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
