The United States of Shhhnbewb is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 889 million Shhhnbewbians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aflouwgh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.2%.

The strong Shhhnbewbian economy, worth 66.8 trillion cooling rain precips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,196 cooling rain precips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 221,939 per year while the poor average 20,035, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Teachers label difficult children as "somebody else's problem" before expelling them, children playing with walkie-talkies are told to 'get a job', homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, and foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Shhhnbewb's national animal is the cloud frlock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shhhnbewb is ranked 148,504th in the world and 57th in Florida for Most Pacifist, with 7.44 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
