The Democratic Republic of Sharold is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.019 billion Carols enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Carold economy, worth 644 trillion Hugs and Chewed Pencils a year, is extremely 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 91,846 Hugs and Chewed Pencils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and interest in globalism never flags. 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 216,266th in the world and 7,006th in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -351.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
