The Empire of Shinasania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Xucukeo I Vuecoto with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.769 billion Shinasanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burando. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Shinasanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,142 trillion Pesos a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 244,337 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The official Shinasanian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, nine-year-olds' chat logs are scoured for evidence of radicalization, citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", and professional athletes juggle part-time jobs to avoid bankruptcy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shinasania's national animal is the Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Truism.

Shinasania is ranked 1,206th in the world and 40th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 32,408.41 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
