The Technocratic Megacorp of BJMShaw is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by BJMShaw with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.889 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BJMShawington. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient BJMShawian economy, worth a remarkable 1,716 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 351,120 Monies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, and arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets. 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 50,449th in the world and 76th in The United Federations for Most Influential, scoring 464 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
