The Dictatorship of Sheepiania is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 317 million Sheepianians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kerguelen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.5%.

The all-consuming Sheepianian economy, worth 33.0 trillion Sheepoks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 104,154 Sheepoks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 624,366 per year while the poor average 7,876, a ratio of 79.3 to 1.

Decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, it's never "just a game" with Sheepianian sports fans, and jaywalking will put an end to a family tree. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sheepiania's national animal is the Sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sheepiania is ranked 28,903rd in the world and 1st in Union of Normal Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 72.67 on the Rand Index.
