The Ever-CTEing account of Sjalhaven is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Trans Agenda with an iron fist, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 11.623 billion depressives are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kollontaigrad. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient depressive economy, worth a remarkable 1,191 trillion memeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 102,535 memeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trouble-makers are frequently turned in to the government to be 'recycled', NationStates staff are easily recognizable by their gold-plated mansions, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, and children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sjalhaven's national animal is the Cisperson, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is eternal wisdom of Vladimir Lenin.

Sjalhaven is ranked 170,366th in the world and 50th in Kylaris for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -9.63 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
