The Anarchic States of Shiandor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Tivra Haldar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.509 billion Shiandori 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 Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shair'dela'rhuin. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shiandori economy, worth 212 trillion shians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 140,824 shians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, and exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles. Crime is totally unknown. Shiandor's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kraffism.

Shiandor is ranked 157,158th in the world and 109th in APSIA for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 352.84 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
