The Shrill Pony Federation of Shrillland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Orange Blossom with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.987 billion Shrills enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Maxia. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Shrilllandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,397 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 186,215 Cooklings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, there's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law. 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 286,968th in the world and 18th in Pony Lands for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -20.59 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
