The Kingdom of SHED 17 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sir Topham Hatt with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.735 billion Bio-Fusion Experiments enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sir Topham Hatts Office. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Shed 17 economy, worth 229 trillion Welsh Coals a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,342 Welsh Coals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in SHED 17, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, and posh kids don't look down on the poor any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SHED 17's national animal is the Train, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

SHED 17 is ranked 134,768th in the world and 7th in The Alterran Republic for Most Extreme, scoring 15.82 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
