The Matriarchy of Shiruku is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dangeom Moon with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.355 billion Shiruks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ketsueki. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Shiruk economy, worth 276 trillion Reidis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,389 Reidis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shiruku's national animal is the Pug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shiruku is ranked 2,305th in the world and 1st in Libera Mundi for Most Pacifist, with 188.17 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
