The Corporation of Shigonia is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by The CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, enslaved workforce, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 980 million workers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The office. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The frighteningly efficient worker economy, worth 122 trillion work hours a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 125,186 work hours, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 524,529 per year while the poor average 19,445, a ratio of 27.0 to 1.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, and health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shigonia's national animal is the robot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Shigonia is ranked 28,261st in the world and 1,525th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 122.5 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
