The Technocratic Megacorp of BJMShaw is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by BJMShaw with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.517 billion BJMShawians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BJMShawington. The average income tax rate is 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient BJMShawian economy, worth 610 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 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 242,666 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, one complaint of BJMShaw's new periodic table is it's easy to confuse fearlessleaderium with gloriousleaderium, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BJMShaw's national animal is the Uni, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kiwism and Warism.

BJMShaw is ranked 16,605th in the world and 43rd in The United Federations for Most Developed, scoring 79.04 on the Human Development Index.
