The Snark Queen of Shidei is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Mei with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.987 billion Shidei are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isnaheim. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Shidei economy, worth 338 trillion cookies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 84,777 cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and politicians fear the otherworldly wrath of poorly made cheese. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shidei's national animal is the amano shrimp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tribadism.

Shidei is ranked 224,834th in the world and 188th in The Western Isles for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -23.87 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
