The Shrekacratic Ogres Republic of VlaRiSsiA is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Eternal Omnipotent Leader Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, ban on automobiles, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.958 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, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swampskow. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Shrekist economy, worth 926 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, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. 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 313,170 O N I O NS, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

The teaching of evolution has been banned, burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and foreign governments regularly accuse the Shrekist military of war crimes. 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 165,845th in the world and 275th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 517.91 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
