The Holy Empire of ShyVini is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 376 million ShyVinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terrasol. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.7%.

The all-consuming ShyVinian economy, worth 47.9 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,278 Bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 412,095 per year while the poor average 29,682, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Straight-edges are forced to collect rain water to avoid getting high off the water supply, days begin with afternoon tea, unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place, and dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ShyVini's national animal is the dinosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ShyVini is ranked 200,728th in the world and 4,980th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 58.77 Years.
