The Empire of SHASLAND is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by SamusHikaru with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.633 billion SHASLANDians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yeland. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving SHASLANDian economy, worth 680 trillion SHAS a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,563 SHAS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular, every week is blindness awareness week, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SHASLAND's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SHASLAND is ranked 52,092nd in the world and 405th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 26.22 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
