The Sleeping Giant of Shizensky is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Willie Macks with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 29.576 billion Shizenskians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shizensk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shizenskian economy, worth a remarkable 3,181 trillion markers a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 107,560 markers, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, the Shizenskian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime is totally unknown. Shizensky's national animal is the hamster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Shizensky is ranked 30,136th in the world and 17th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Governments, scoring 22.11 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
