The Shrekacratic Ogres Republic of VlaRiSsiA is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Eternal Omnipotent Leader Shrek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, enslaved workforce, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.977 billion Ogres are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swampskow. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Shrekist economy, worth 496 trillion O N I O NS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 251,367 O N I O NS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, trespassers entering Supreme Eternal Omnipotent Leader Shrek's office are immediately vaporized, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VlaRiSsiA's national animal is the Donkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shrekism.

VlaRiSsiA is ranked 214,866th in the world and 311th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 11.28 Tourists Per Hour.
