The Democratic Republic of Shefino is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prezident Graham with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, national health service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.713 billion Shefinoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shef. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shefinoan economy, worth 410 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,317 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Generals have trouble barking orders over the sound of thundering artillery, Prezident Graham is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, international tensions are high as Shefino threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shefino's national animal is the White sabertooth tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shefino is ranked 160,370th in the world and 5,473rd in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 27,691.19 Standard Monetary Units.
