The Kingdom of Shoinkwishima is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Donte with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.419 billion Shoinkwishimen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Louis. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shoinkwishiman economy, worth 200 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,381 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and therapists can always squeeze in another house-call. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shoinkwishima's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whatever.

Shoinkwishima is ranked 203,672nd in the world and 7,097th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.65 Obesity Rate.
