The Quarantined Queen of Sho is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ya Boi with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.191 billion Shoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kouru. The average income tax rate is 32.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Shoan economy, worth 100 trillion units a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,902 units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sho's national animal is the Matamata, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shovinism.

Sho is ranked 64,442nd in the world and 91st in Thalassia for Most Average, scoring 42.34 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
