The Kingdom of Shemiki is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Théodore LXIX with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.098 billion Shemienese enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The minute, corrupt, liberal 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 4,468 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 316,950 shikis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,044,531 per year while the poor average 72,010, a ratio of 14.5 to 1.
Exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, and King Théodore LXIX is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government. 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.
