The Sheldonist Republic of Sheldony is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sheldor with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.081 billion Sheldonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheldonia. The income tax rate is 100.0%.
The large but inefficient Sheldonian economy, worth 825 trillion Sheldeuros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,575 Sheldeuros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, Sheldor is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, and snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Sheldor's majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheldony's national animal is the Axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
