The Restored Social States of Oldshade is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.282 billion Oldshadeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of United City. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The Oldshadean economy, worth 425 trillion Crimson Coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is 99,475 Crimson Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, and Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oldshade's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Oldshade is ranked 1,897th in the world and 44th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.34 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
