The Kingdom of Tshana is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Germain V with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.212 billion Tshanans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lumara. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Tshanan economy, worth 647 trillion Royals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,479 Royals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tshana's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tshana is ranked 2,029th in the world and 46th in The East Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 225 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
