The Free Land of Shermani is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 646 million Shermen are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Shore. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Shermanian economy, worth 51.1 trillion Sherms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 79,084 Sherms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', flight attendants rip down curtains with revolutionary fervor, a government program is underway to revitalize Shermani's beaches, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime is totally unknown. Shermani's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shermani is ranked 232,247th in the world and 448th in The Leftist Assembly for Rudest Citizens, with 11.48 Insults Per Minute.
