The 💩💩💩 of Shizensky is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Willie Macks with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 24.668 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 60.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shizenskian economy, worth a remarkable 2,658 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 107,756 markers, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, the Shizenskian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. 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 116,087th in the world and 74th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 900.82 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
