The Kingdom of ShangriLaa is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 388 million ShangriLaans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amestris. The average income tax rate is 58.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse ShangriLaan economy, worth 38.5 trillion zens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,295 zens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-zen charge on their phone bill, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", and you need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ShangriLaa's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

ShangriLaa is ranked 47,733rd in the world and 33rd in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 58.73 Effective Tax Rate.
