The Constitutional Monarchy of Shofercia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ilya Murometz with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 23.76 billion Shofercians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invention. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.1%.

The powerhouse Shofercian economy, worth a remarkable 2,835 trillion gold standards a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 119,348 gold standards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 354,862 per year while the poor average 31,469, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Loans are available for students from poor families, skateparks can be found in every city, religious education is a new government priority, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shofercia's national animal is the white unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shofercia is ranked 13,632nd in the world and 1st in Tiandi for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 354,862.81 Standard Monetary Units.
