The Queendom of Shantuary is a huge, genial nation, notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 471 million Shantuaryians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiwi. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Shantuaryian economy, worth 36.6 trillion Shannieses a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,685 Shannieses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shantuary's national animal is the Ragdoll Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shantuary is ranked 217,272nd in the world and 7,236th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.94 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
