The Empire of Empire Of Shield is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor of the Peopel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.4 billion Empire Of Shieldians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Artificial Hibernia. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Empire Of Shieldian economy, worth 71.8 trillion The Shieldian Regalias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,255 The Shieldian Regalias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Information Technology facilities are being turned into Polar Bear habitats, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire Of Shield's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Polar Bear.

Empire Of Shield is ranked 144,174th in the world and 853rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 452.82 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
