The Empire of Shiya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God King Antony with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.687 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 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 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyian economy, worth an astonishing 11,266 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. Average income is a breathtaking 544,637 Fuhs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children, recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred, and corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with. 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 1,360th in the world and 16th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Black Market, with 2,184 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
