|Leader||King Théodore LXIX|
The Kingdom of Shemiki is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Théodore LXIX with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, prohibition of alcohol, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.972 billion Shemienese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
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 4,893 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 326,866 shikis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,080,759 per year while the poor average 73,901, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.
Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, artists are pillars of society, and blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued. 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.
