The Still Mostly Retired of Sho is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ya Boi with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.326 billion Shoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kouru. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Shoan economy, worth 227 trillion units a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 35,995 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles, bars are packed at all hours, historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, and the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sho's national animal is the Matamata, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shovinism.

Sho is ranked 178,424th in the world and 164th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Stationary, with 28.38270405728 days.
