The Grand Jurisprudence of Shamian is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tarrin Kael with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.919 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 Environment, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 2,672 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 299,685 Taols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, teachers are dying as they attempt to read 500 word essays without pausing for breath, and children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn. 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 201,588th in the world and 594th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.2 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
