The United Plum States of Shkod is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Max the Gardener with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.925 billion Shkodians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vitas. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shkodian economy, worth 264 trillion plums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,374 plums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shkod's national animal is the myriadic camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shkod is ranked 28,466th in the world and 1,102nd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.26 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
