The Tyranny of Sheitlein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Master with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, avant-garde cinema, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.515 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 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Sheitleinian economy, worth 18.5 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 4,108 Shukoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, the world outside is only known of in folklore, Master is the self-declared God of all Sheitlein, and Master has just been declared ruler of Sheitlein in an international press conference. 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, and its national religion is Tyranny.

Sheitlein is ranked 410th in the world and 4th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Income Equality, scoring 100 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
