The Devout Adminites of Shizensky is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Milton Radshanks with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.97 billion Shizenskians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shizensk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Shizenskian economy, worth a remarkable 2,375 trillion markers a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 108,115 markers, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the World Devout Adminites Games have been won again by Shizensky as no other country cares enough to compete, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and the Shizenskian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime is totally unknown. Shizensky's national animal is the hamster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Shizensky is ranked 152,534th in the world and 291st in Renegade Islands Alliance for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 28.41 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
