The United Socialist States of Shilovo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by TrueImagine with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.774 billion Shilovoans 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.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great ShL. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Shilovoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,851 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 211,045 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shilovoans believe manners maketh the leader, baby dolls thrown in the trash are a leading cause of panic attacks, the SBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Shilovo at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shilovo's national animal is the Bodybuilding, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Believe in yourself.

Shilovo is ranked 53,522nd in the world and 17th in Wintercrest for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,355.61 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
