The Common Sense Republic of Sharpanistan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sharpshooter with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.583 billion Sharpanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shoottawa. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sharpanistanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,952 trillion Shootmarks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 341,190 Shootmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, several inches are being added to first class seating, and human pie shops continue to receive shipments of meat from Spleeny Rodd's. Crime is totally unknown. Sharpanistan's national animal is the Orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sharpanistan is ranked 3,085th in the world and 21st in Canada for Highest Economic Output, with 3,952 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
