The Imperial Semi-Democracy of Shnailand is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kevin Kurashima with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.411 billion Shnailandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shnailand City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Shnailandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,269 trillion Shnailandian Notes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 314,060 Shnailandian Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, and official maps have to be revised on a weekly basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shnailand's national animal is the Shnail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Way of the Shnail.

Shnailand is ranked 2,667th in the world and 94th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,620.46 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
