The United Species of Shimerta is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Dracron with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.336 billion Shimertans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pegazon. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shimertan economy, worth 369 trillion Opeos 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 85,116 Opeos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with High Dracron, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, and no one is worried about government policies any more. Crime is totally unknown. Shimerta's national animal is the Dracron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shimerta is ranked 139,897th in the world and 313th in Forest for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -5.1 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
