The United Species of Shimerta is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by High Dracron with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.771 billion Shimertans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pegazon. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shimertan economy, worth 512 trillion Opeos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Soda Sales. Average income is 88,772 Opeos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime is totally unknown. Shimerta's national animal is the Dracron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shimerta is ranked 92,574th in the world and 254th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.2 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
