The Democratic Republic of Shefino is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prezident Graham with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.996 billion Shefinoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shef. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shefinoan economy, worth 446 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,937 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, all the playground's a stage for Shefinoan schoolchildren, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Crown charge on their phone bill, and the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods". Crime is totally unknown. Shefino's national animal is the White sabertooth tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shefino is ranked 194,552nd in the world and 6,186th in the South Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.22 Weapons Per Person.
