The Shrekacratic Ogres Republic of VlaRiSsiA is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Eternal Omnipotent Leader Shrek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.223 billion Ogres 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swampskow. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Shrekist economy, worth a remarkable 1,048 trillion O N I O NS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 325,408 O N I O NS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Shrekist Colonial Thesaurus, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, all fantasy fiction has officially been deemed non-canon, and the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VlaRiSsiA's national animal is the Donkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shrekism.

VlaRiSsiA is ranked 568th in the world and 10th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 30,545.6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
