The Autocratic Stratocracy of Sharkdonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Joseph Builder II with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.69 billion Sharkdonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sharkdon. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sharkdonian economy, worth 880 trillion Sharkdonian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 238,618 Sharkdonian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, you can get married in sickness and in health but not internationally, and fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sharkdonia's national animal is the Red Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Kharistrisismn.

Sharkdonia is ranked 85,005th in the world and 100th in Anteria for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,565.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
