The Theocracy of Shihganfe is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 172 million Shihganfeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Shihganfean economy, worth 8.52 trillion Szchequinns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,556 Szchequinns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, nudity is frowned upon, and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shihganfe's national animal is the Stork, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shihganfe is ranked 25,730th in the world and 576th in the West Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 76.61 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
