The Free Empire of Shaunborough is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shaun Andrews with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.631 billion Shaunboroughians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hexvycombe. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaunboroughian economy, worth a remarkable 1,168 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,144 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, it's never "just a game" with Shaunboroughian sports fans, Shaun Andrews's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and for just a few extra Marks Shaunboroughians can get new driving records with their new cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaunborough's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is United Protestant.

Shaunborough is ranked 205,548th in the world and 7,702nd in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.38 Crimes Per Hour.
