The Kingdom of Tshana is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Germain V with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 2.318 billion Tshanans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lumara. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tshanan economy, worth 451 trillion Royals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 194,935 Royals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tshana's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tshana is ranked 2,437th in the world and 49th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 65.81 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
