The Shrekacratic Ogres Republic of VlaRiSsiA is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Eternal Omnipotent Leader Shrek with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.73 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, 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 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Shrekist economy, worth 376 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. 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 217,539 O N I O NS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Shouting contests are an important part of government job interviews, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, and children keel over while singing "Supreme Eternal Omnipotent Leader Shrek Gives Us the Water of Life". 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 204,183rd in the world and 323rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 21.8 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
