The Allied States of Shov Scien is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 609 million Shov Scienans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Grand Court. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Shov Scieni economy, worth 10.6 trillion Amits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 17,439 Amits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shov Scien's national animal is the Placeholder, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shov Scien is ranked 235,348th in the world and 8th in Mystery Flesh Pit for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 18,787 Standard Monetary Units.
