The Empire of Shiya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God King Antony with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.96 billion Zyans 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 relatively small, corrupt, 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 10.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyian economy, worth an astonishing 11,498 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 rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 548,595 Fuhs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, the debts of the father fall upon the son, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 168th in the world and 2nd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 46,307.42 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
