The Queendom of The Shezu New is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 862 million Shezu Newians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Shezu Newian economy, worth 6.17 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 7,154 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Shezu New's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Shezu New is ranked 155,363rd in the world and 4,750th in The East Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 86.03 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
