The Grand Jurisprudence of Shamian is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tarrin Kael with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.204 billion Shamanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh-Morpork. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Shamianian economy, worth a remarkable 3,377 trillion Taols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 301,420 Taols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime is totally unknown. Shamian's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Jainism.

Shamian is ranked 24,154th in the world and 253rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Patriotic, with 31.33 flags saluted per person per day.
