The Shrill Pony Federation of Shrillland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Orange Blossom with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.765 billion Shrills 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 enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Maxia. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Shrilllandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,550 trillion Cooklings a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,759 Cooklings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, and civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shrillland's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Celestianism.

Shrillland is ranked 943rd in the world and 3rd in Pony Realms for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,512.82 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
