The Queendom of Shantuary is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its smutty television and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 326 million Shantuaryians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiwi. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Shantuaryian economy, worth 22.9 trillion Shannieses a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,221 Shannieses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, posters on 'Shantuaryian Values' advise against being proud of Shantuary, and political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shantuary's national animal is the Ragdoll Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shantuary is ranked 163,880th in the world and 5,379th in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 61.65 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
