The United Communist Empire of Sheboyganite Union is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Homero Garza Jr with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.212 billion Sheboyganites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheboygan. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sheboyganite economy, worth 176 trillion Sheboyganite Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 146,002 Sheboyganite Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Card collectors duel to the death, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheboyganite Union's national animal is the Ugandan Knuckles, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kimilsungism.

Sheboyganite Union is ranked 125,089th in the world and 9th in Imperium Magnum for Highest Drug Use, scoring 36.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
