The Holy Empire of Shrekslav is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.342 billion Shrekslavians 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shrekslavian economy, worth 132 trillion Keks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 98,516 Keks, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens hear a diversity of opinions from a range of billionaire-owned corporations, the country's motorways are surprisingly quiet, prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, and cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shrekslav's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shrekslav is ranked 116,699th in the world and 3,520th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 465.33 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
