The Dictatorship of Shronok is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Naora Natson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.535 billion Shronokians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shronok City. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Shronokian economy, worth 358 trillion Schroes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,871 Schroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, and over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shronok's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shronok is ranked 75,352nd in the world and 74th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 57.78 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
