The Nakedness of Sheelberite is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Walter J Peabody III with an even hand, and renowned for its feral children, enslaved workforce, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.241 billion Sheelberites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bloodyoath. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sheelberitean economy, worth 638 trillion dollarydoos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Tourism and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 150,454 dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, an inkwell of goats' blood is supplied on school desks across the nation, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheelberite's national animal is the Flamin' Codswallop, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pantheism.

Sheelberite is ranked 22,819th in the world and 427th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 719.60407417532 Days.
