The Kingdom of Shemiki is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Théodore LXIX with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.699 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 5,158 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 328,580 shikis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,065,364 per year while the poor average 76,468, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, for just a few extra shikis Shemienese can get new driving records with their new cars, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental. 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 152,910th in the world and 162nd in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -44.61 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
