The United Socialist States of Shailesh is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 377 million Shaileshians 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Shaileshian economy, worth 15.3 trillion litras a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,565 litras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pocket dialling is a criminal offence, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and the main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shailesh's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shailesh is ranked 10,288th in the world and 548th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 119.57 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
