The Technocratic Megacorp of BJMShaw is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by BJMShaw with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.424 billion BJMShawians 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, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BJMShawington. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient BJMShawian economy, worth a remarkable 1,496 trillion Monies 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 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 338,368 Monies, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, 200 mph car chases are a frequent sight on the otherwise empty motorways, billions of Monies are spent to take high-quality photos of the Uni Nebula, and the question of 'what is BJMShaw's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BJMShaw's national animal is the Uni, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kiwism.

BJMShaw is ranked 207,998th in the world and 178th in The United Federations for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.21 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
