The Commonwealth of Sheppey is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Isaac Reynolds with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.285 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 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sheppeyian economy, worth 552 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 104,515 Maiters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, and most ambassadors from Sheppey retire only a few years after being appointed. 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.

Sheppey is ranked 66,974th in the world and 3,372nd in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 130,856.21 Standard Monetary Units.
