The Confederacy of Shikito is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 813 million Shikitoans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The very strong Shikitoan economy, worth 54.0 trillion Han'eis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 66,477 Han'eis, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,795 per year while the poor average 6,275, a ratio of 57.7 to 1.

Mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, 90% of active duty SAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, beggars on the street are often heard asking for spare votes, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime is a problem. Shikito's national animal is the Black Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Shikito is ranked 212,694th in the world and 3rd in Dione for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 19.16 Tourists Per Hour.
