The Shrill Pony Federation of Shrillland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Orange Blossom with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.375 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 3,707 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 181,938 Cooklings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, where there's smoke there's the Shrilllandian Forestry Department, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. 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 7,460th in the world and 11th in Pony Lands for Most Devout, with 2,448.73 Prayers Per Hour.
