The Empire of Shoos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Adolf Shoos with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.644 billion Shoosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shoosengrad. The average income tax rate is 86.7%.

The powerhouse Shoosian economy, worth 439 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 166,180 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, foreign lack of enthusiasm for Shoosian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', and computers are widely considered to be the "devil magic of heathens". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shoos's national animal is the bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shoosianity.

Shoos is ranked 3,446th in the world and 198th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 622.97 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
