|Capital||New Sheppey City|
The Commonwealth of Sheppey is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Isaac Reynolds with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 4.737 billion Sheppeyians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sheppey City. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Sheppeyian economy, worth 491 trillion Maiters a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,668 Maiters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Sheppey after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Sheppey. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheppey's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Abrahamism.
