The Republic of Sho is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 454 million Shoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.6%.

The Shoan economy, worth 19.0 trillion units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,919 units, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, edutainment video games are taking Sho's students to the next level, every week is blindness awareness week, and new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Sho's national animal is the Matamata, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sho is ranked 140,898th in the world and 162nd in Thalassia for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -5.29 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
