The Empire of Sheffelia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Edward Scovantie I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.144 billion Sheffelians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 45.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sheffelian economy, worth 460 trillion Denars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,381 Denars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Sheffelian Space Agency, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, and the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sheffelia's national animal is the Honey badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Sheffelia is ranked 93,279th in the world and 4th in The Senate Alliance for Rudest Citizens, with 52.26 Insults Per Minute.
