The Grand Duchy of Shauls is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.189 billion Shaulsians 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 Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ternin. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Shaulsian economy, worth 49.5 trillion verths a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,610 verths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, children who express a belief in Santa are labelled 'delusional cultists', and unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shauls's national animal is the Goshawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shauls is ranked 194,264th in the world and 338th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.91 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
