The Federal Republic of Shanmugasundaram is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.577 billion Shanmugasundaramians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Shanmugasundaramian economy, worth 111 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 70,925 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Sleeping on the job is recommended, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, and industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out. Crime is totally unknown. Shanmugasundaram's national animal is the Holy Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shanmugasundaram is ranked 141,062nd in the world and 4,346th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 28.54 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
