The Imperial Republic of Shenifar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pierre Van-Duceleur with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.919 billion Sheniferns are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramont. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Shenifarian economy, worth 751 trillion Marche Notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 58,195 Marche Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shenifar's national animal is the Red Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Animism.

Shenifar is ranked 25,950th in the world and 16th in RGBN for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 217.11 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
