The Dark Shogunate of EnderShnovia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Black Shogun with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ritual sacrifices, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.798 billion EnderShnovians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlasdam. The average income tax rate is 68.3%.

The all-consuming EnderShnovian economy, worth 383 trillion Novs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,113 Novs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EnderShnovia's national animal is the Red-Ringed Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atlasism.

EnderShnovia is ranked 17,536th in the world and 446th in The East Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 88 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
