The Evil Armed Psychotic Empire of Sheoss is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Daedric Lord of Cheesecake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.832 billion Minions are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sheoss. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Minion economy, worth a remarkable 8,633 trillion sacs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 321,765 sacs, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government-sponsored autobiography 'A The Daedric Lord of Cheesecake For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of The Daedric Lord of Cheesecake's supporters, the nation was recently voted as the most stylish in Balder, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheoss's national animal is the Unified Antiswiffer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is FRED.

Sheoss is ranked 3,020th in the world and 159th in Balder for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 12,719.32 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
