The United Species of Shimerta is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Dracron with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.409 billion Shimertans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pegazon. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shimertan economy, worth 870 trillion Opeos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 92,531 Opeos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is totally unknown. Shimerta's national animal is the Dracron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shimerta is ranked 13,444th in the world and 82nd in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,884.82 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
