The Former Nation of Squornshelous is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Sweyn Petrov I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.159 billion Squornshelans 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vogsphere. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Squornshelousian economy, worth a remarkable 4,933 trillion Squornshelan Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 244,729 Squornshelan Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Companies are turning to trained Ferrets for their most menial jobs, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, students abandon classrooms for online education, and tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Squornshelous's national animal is the Ferret, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Squornshelous is ranked 181,493rd in the world and 167th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -6 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
