The Democratic Republic of Shenny is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 7.454 billion Shennyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yneg. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Shennyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,048 trillion shennyzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 274,866 shennyzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, fat-shaming is now public policy, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shenny's national animal is the green eye dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shenny is ranked 1,217th in the world and 27th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.85 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
