The Kingdom of East Shetland is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 390 million East Shetlandians 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glaschu r. The average income tax rate is 20.5%.

The very strong East Shetlandian economy, worth 26.4 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 67,749 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

People talk about things being better when men were men, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the nation sends criminals home to think about what they did, and family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Shetland's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Shetland is ranked 146,102nd in the world and 1,543rd in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 12.7 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
