The Matriarchy of Shiruku is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dangeom Moon with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.225 billion Shiruks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ketsueki. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Shiruk economy, worth 253 trillion Reidis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,132 Reidis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shiruku's national animal is the Pug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shiruku is ranked 47,410th in the world and 8th in Libera Mundi for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
