The Republic of Shueville is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Otto Chaos with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.72 billion Shuevillians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otto City. The average income tax rate is 30.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shuevillean economy, worth 777 trillion Titanium Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 100,695 Titanium Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Nations that kill a Shuevillian can expect a strongly worded letter, a third of Shuevillians are e-certified CEOs, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, and soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shueville's national animal is the Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shueville is ranked 35,561st in the world and 194th in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 63.44 on the Rand Index.
