The Forest of Shirakahn is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 24.447 billion Shirakahnians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Shirakahnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,183 trillion happinesses of all a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is 89,299 happinesses of all, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Shirakahn City generates millions of views, people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime is totally unknown. Shirakahn's national animal is the freedom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirakahn is ranked 124,024th in the world and 5,093rd in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 853.41 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
