The Sultanate of Secret Shopaholics Society is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.148 billion Secret Shopaholics Societyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 2.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Secret Shopaholics Societyian economy, worth 637 trillion Skirts 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. 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 impressive 153,623 Skirts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most towns have their Leader High School located on Leader Street, voting is compulsory, opening doors for ladies is never seen as misogynistic, and stern tutting by international commentators has persuaded Secret Shopaholics Society to disarm. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Secret Shopaholics Society's national animal is the Sweat Shop Worker, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Secret Shopaholics Society is ranked 80,702nd in the world and 35th in Japanese Delegates for Most Stationary, with 287.5257882056 days.
