The Empire of Shinasania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Xucukeo I Vuecoto with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 5.315 billion Shinasanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burando. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Shinasanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,049 trillion Pesos a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,425 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Shinasania, and the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shinasania's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Truism.

Shinasania is ranked 20,826th in the world and 234th in Balder for Most Stationary, with 678.18305207368 Days.
