The Shrill Pony Federation of Shrillland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Orange Blossom with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.629 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, socially-minded 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 98.6%.

The all-consuming Shrilllandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,568 trillion Cooklings a year, is highly 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 181,814 Cooklings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, and where there's smoke there's the Shrilllandian Forestry Department. 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 2,470th in the world and 10th in Pony Lands for Highest Economic Output, with 3,568 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
