The Grey Havens of Shaizan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.403 billion Elves enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osgiliath. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaizanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,154 trillion Tharnis a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 207,125 Tharnis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback Great Eagle is only seen in captivity programs, the official Shaizanian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaizan's national animal is the Great Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shaizan is ranked 1,154th in the world and 4th in The Free Nations Region for Most Developed, scoring 98.23 on the Human Development Index.
