Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Sheradia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Thomas Richmond with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.994 billion Sheradians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free Haven. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The very strong Sheradian economy, worth a remarkable 2,262 trillion florins a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 133,151 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrant Bigtopians work themselves to the bone to support gold-plated Sheradian pensions, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, and the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheradia's national animal is the Teddy Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sheradia is ranked 177,384th in the world and 8,663rd in the Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.3 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
