The Democratic Republic of Shoulgan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by National Congress Executive Command with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.117 billion Shoulganites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caracas. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shoulganite economy, worth a remarkable 2,758 trillion Shoulgan Units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,137 Shoulgan Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill, and Shoulganite police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shoulgan's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shoulgan is ranked 10,387th in the world and 4th in Australialia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.07 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
