The Ancient Realm of Sho Mak Lan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Kevin with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.091 billion Sho Mak Lanians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lo Kinvco. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sho Mak Lanian economy, worth 542 trillion Lamatosas a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,656 Lamatosas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, the latest drugs are only legally available to private patients, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sho Mak Lan's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Xianism.

Sho Mak Lan is ranked 104,570th in the world and 162nd in Sonindia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.78 on the Rand Index.
