The Empire of Empire Of Shield is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor of the Peopel with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.689 billion Empire Of Shieldians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Artificial Hibernia. The average income tax rate is 61.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Empire Of Shieldian economy, worth 85.6 trillion The Shieldian Regalias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,687 The Shieldian Regalias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, private law firms are unheard of, and the Empire Of Shieldian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire Of Shield's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Polar Bear.

Empire Of Shield is ranked 166,108th in the world and 889th in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 512.22 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
