The Democratic Republic of Sharold is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.347 billion Carols hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Careold. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Carold economy, worth 585 trillion Hugs and Chewed Pencils a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,223 Hugs and Chewed Pencils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, recognizing the Carold flag qualifies you for citizenship, and a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sharold's national animal is the Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sharold is ranked 104,586th in the world and 3,800th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 65.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
