Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Shemiki is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Théodore LXIX with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.7 billion Shemienese enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montreuil. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Shemienese economy, worth a remarkable 4,458 trillion shikis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 325,444 shikis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Purported secret military bases are dismissed by King Théodore LXIX to be highly-advanced toilet factories, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, and the question of 'what is King Théodore LXIX's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Shemiki's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Shemiki is ranked 1,638th in the world and 9th in Texas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 19,364.09 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
