The Rogue Nation of MV Shark is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 610 million MV Sharkians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The thriving MV Sharkian economy, worth 47.2 trillion Shark teeth a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 77,398 Shark teeth, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 259,546 per year while the poor average 17,135, a ratio of 15.1 to 1.

College-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, the government is a law unto itself, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and polychromatic seas of leaves blanket the ground while sewers and drain pipes are clogged by their detritus. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. MV Shark's national animal is the Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

MV Shark is ranked 64,701st in the world and 1st in EON for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,931.48 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
