The Democratic States of Shanor is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 835 million Shanorians 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 Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dimfall. The average income tax rate is 23.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Shanorian economy, worth 69.3 trillion Shanorian Markjas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 83,025 Shanorian Markjas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, euthanasia is illegal, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Shanor, and subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shanor's national animal is the Greisko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shanor is ranked 35,369th in the world and 992nd in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 80.83 Insults Per Minute.
