The Sheldonist Republic of Sheldony is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sheldor with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.043 billion Sheldonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheldonia. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.
The large but underdeveloped Sheldonian economy, worth 661 trillion Sheldeuros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,941 Sheldeuros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, being impolite in public is punishable by heavy fines, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, and unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheldony's national animal is the Axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
