The Tetracameral Dictatorships of Shffahkia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Duncan Delacroix with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.136 billion Shffahkians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville de la Sfakie. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.5%.

The strong Shffahkian economy, worth 206 trillion Revolutionary Francs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 65,842 Revolutionary Francs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 194,153 per year while the poor average 17,566, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, the newest shade developed by Shffahkia's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', and snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shffahkia's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Culte Delacroix.

Shffahkia is ranked 64,905th in the world and 52nd in Eurth for Most Developed, scoring 55.33 on the Human Development Index.
