The Incorporated States of Sharps inc is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Board with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.69 billion Sharps incians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York City. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sharps incian economy, worth a remarkable 2,199 trillion Stock shares a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 328,727 Stock shares, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sharps inc's national animal is the Bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Market Trends.

Sharps inc is ranked 4,837th in the world and 258th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,116.86 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
