The Liberal Republic of Sheren is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.424 billion Sherenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The large, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leon Sher Duen City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sherenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,346 trillion Ramurs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 129,132 Ramurs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 404,318 per year while the poor average 31,622, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds. Crime is totally unknown. Sheren's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sheren is ranked 231,040th in the world and 149th in The Social Liberal Union for Least Corrupt Governments, with 87.33 percentage of bribes refused.
