The Imperial Semi-Democracy of Shnailand is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kevin Kurashima with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.573 billion Shnailandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shnailand City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Shnailandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,329 trillion Shnailandian Notes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 307,635 Shnailandian Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shnailand's national animal is the Shnail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Way of the Shnail.

Shnailand is ranked 173,280th in the world and 7,347th in the Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -28.18 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
