The Kingdom of Shoinkwishima is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Donte with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 975 million Shoinkwishimen 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Louis. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shoinkwishiman economy, worth 132 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,236 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, new urban roads are threatening city parks, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", and children dream of becoming physicians and physicists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shoinkwishima's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shoinkwishima is ranked 22,641st in the world and 749th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,669.12 on the Edu-tellignce Test Score.
