The Empire of Shazbotdom is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Larry Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 36.826 billion Shazites live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shaz City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Shazbotian economy, worth a remarkable 7,536 trillion Black Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 204,646 Black Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 729,530 per year while the poor average 41,291, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, nations that kill a Shazite can expect a strongly worded letter, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere. Crime is totally unknown. Shazbotdom's national animal is the Havoc, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Shazbotdom is ranked 28,756th in the world and 1st in The Shazbotdom Empire for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.61 Bank.
