The Empire of Shinasania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Xucukeo I Vuecoto with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 11.413 billion Shinasanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burando. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Shinasanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,811 trillion Pesos a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 246,328 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Document forgery is a critical skill for would-be politicians, a large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shinasania's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Truism.

Shinasania is ranked 256,795th in the world and 6,943rd in Balder for Least Corrupt Governments, with 3.18 percentage of bribes refused.
