The Empire of Shazbotdom is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Larry Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.914 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, outspoken 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 6,520 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 204,321 Black Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 671,150 per year while the poor average 46,647, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime is totally unknown. Shazbotdom's national animal is the Havoc and its national religion is Secularism.

Shazbotdom is ranked 171,474th in the world and 1st in The Shazbotdom Empire for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -22.72 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
