The Free Land of Shermani is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 227 million Shermen enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Shermanian economy, worth 6.32 trillion Sherms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 27,857 Sherms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, the election for Leader's office's janitor is heating up, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime is totally unknown. Shermani's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shermani is ranked 223,109th in the world and 414th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Black Market, with 3.60 billion Standard Monetary Units.
