The Kingdom of Shoinkwishima is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Donte with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.407 billion 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Louis. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shoinkwishiman economy, worth 602 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,716 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, sleeping on the job is recommended, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. 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, and its national religion is Muslim.

Shoinkwishima is ranked 156,426th in the world and 6,618th in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 238.57 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
