The Empire of Shiya is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by God King Antony with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.811 billion Zyans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gojira. The average income tax rate is 5.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyian economy, worth an astonishing 10,555 trillion Fuhs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is a breathtaking 532,796 Fuhs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, and 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Shiya's national animal is the Nine tailed fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Shiya is ranked 210,673rd in the world and 303rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -9.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
