The Incorporated States of Shuell is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Sloan with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.83 billion Shuellians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Shuellian economy, worth a remarkable 2,094 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 433,580 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,816,693 per year while the poor average 67,349, a ratio of 27.0 to 1.

Sheep-like political loyalists repeat the mantra "one wheel bad, three wheels good", school uniforms are compulsory, water fights now end with thousands dead, and several inches are being added to first class seating. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shuell's national animal is the crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Szilankism.

Shuell is ranked 103,126th in the world and 86th in International Democratic Union for Most Stationary, with 72.26847458148 Days.
