The Dictatorship of The shefla is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by duccari with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.733 billion sheflans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving sheflan economy, worth 464 trillion units a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,054 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shanty towns of homeless immigrants are the ideal recruiting ground for terrorist organisations, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The shefla's national animal is the snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The shefla is ranked 139,935th in the world and 11th in Cynosure for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
