The Empire of Shazbotdom is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Larry Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 32.243 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 6,587 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 160,305th in the world and 1st in The Shazbotdom Empire for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -37.82 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
