The Empire of Shrekland123 is a tiny, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 12 million Shrekland123ians 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The developing Shrekland123ian economy, worth 400 billion Shrek bucks 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip 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 33,356 Shrek bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending is on the increase, nudity is frowned upon, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shrekland123's national animal is the Joe mama.

Shrekland123 is ranked 161,634th in the world and 55th in Mariner Trench for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 10.2 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
