The Peaceful Conglomerate of Shiftierier is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Shifter with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.088 billion Shifties love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shift-Key. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.
The all-consuming Shiftie economy, worth 885 trillion Fish a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,961 Fish, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Shiftie novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Supreme Shifter, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Shift-Key. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shiftierier's national animal is the HE-Grenade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fishing.
