The Komunejo of Shoila is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 775 million Shoilians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antaburra. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shoilian economy, worth 103 trillion Shols a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,269 Shols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The President has just been declared ruler of Shoila in an international press conference, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime is almost non-existent. Shoila's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shoila is ranked 8,716th in the world and 19th in Thaecia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,834.75 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
