The Quarantined Queen of Sho is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ya Boi with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.71 billion Shoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kouru. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Shoan economy, worth 121 trillion units a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 32,789 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sho's national animal is the Matamata, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shovinism.

Sho is ranked 176,989th in the world and 83rd in Thalassia for Most Extreme, scoring 11.44 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
