The Common Sense Republic of Sharpanistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sharpshooter with a fair hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.733 billion Sharpanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shoottawa. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sharpanistanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,000 trillion Shootmarks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 340,982 Shootmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime is totally unknown. Sharpanistan's national animal is the Orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sharpanistan is ranked 149,521st in the world and 112th in Canada for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,103.69 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
