The Empire of Shiya is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by God King Antony with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.605 billion Zyans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, 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. The average income tax rate is 18.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyian economy, worth an astonishing 12,547 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 rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 580,746 Fuhs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and parking lots are littered with coffee cups and doughnut crumbs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 87,708th in the world and 122nd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,515.31 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
