The Republic of Sheitlein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.025 billion Sheitleinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skroove. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Sheitleinian economy, worth 12.3 trillion Shukoes 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 4,073 Shukoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Smiling in public is seen as criminally suspicious behaviour, the state believes that children are what you make of them, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, and the world outside is only known of in folklore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheitlein's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sheitlein is ranked 34,799th in the world and 26th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Healthiest Citizens, with 7.03 bananas ingested per day.
