The Imperial Republic of Shenifar is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Pierre Van-Duceleur with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 9.091 billion Sheniferns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramont. The average income tax rate is 20.6%.

The Shenifarian economy, worth 420 trillion Marche Notes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,291 Marche Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign musicians that Pierre Van-Duceleur dislikes are turned away at the border, the news is showing footage of Pierre Van-Duceleur bullying an old man to the point of tears, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and there's more vermin than ever on the metro. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Shenifar's national animal is the Red Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Animism.

Shenifar is ranked 217,636th in the world and 121st in RGBN for Highest Drug Use, scoring 17.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
