The Matriarchy of Shiruku is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dangeom Moon with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.813 billion Shiruks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ketsueki. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Shiruk economy, worth 185 trillion Reidis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,244 Reidis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prices for nearly everything reach all-time highs as business tax breaks are discontinued, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. 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 7,182nd in the world and 1st in Libera Mundi for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,384.91 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
