The Nomadic Peoples of Shake Rag is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ned Ryerson with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 6.723 billion Shake Ragians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tellico Plains. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shake Ragian economy, worth 532 trillion Summer Sausages a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 79,165 Summer Sausages, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 348,434 per year while the poor average 11,290, a ratio of 30.9 to 1.

Fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, citizens insist that there's no law against standing downwind when marijuana crops are burned off, the name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across Shake Rag, and Ned Ryerson's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Tellico Plains generates millions of views. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shake Rag's national animal is the Mosquito, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Shake Rag is ranked 48,229th in the world and 7th in Anubis for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,651.74 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
