The Fearless Federation of Kanpekina Shima is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Lumine Tartaglia with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.527 billion Shimen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klorima. The average income tax rate is 66.1%.

The powerhouse Shiman economy, worth 466 trillion screts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,094 screts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

A crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, and people are often woken up by rubbish music. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kanpekina Shima's national animal is the Kentucky fried chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nordic Paganism.

Kanpekina Shima is ranked 79,825th in the world and 64th in First World Order for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,271.65 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
