The Great Dynasty of Shi-Yue is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Wanli with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 3.585 billion Shi-Yueans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gam Sing. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shi-Yuean economy, worth 739 trillion Yins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 206,386 Yins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shi-Yue's national animal is the Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Buddhist - Taoism.

Shi-Yue is ranked 10,850th in the world and 21st in Anteria for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,486.38 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
