The Empire of Shiya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God King Antony with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.211 billion Zyans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gojira. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyian economy, worth a remarkable 8,664 trillion Fuhs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 503,433 Fuhs, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, Shiya has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, and mandatory patriotic themes make even the newest movies feel like remakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Shiya's national animal is the Nine tailed fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Shiya is ranked 3,431st in the world and 34th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 40 Valid Endorsements.
