The Democratic Republic of Shrekistani is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 476 million Shrekists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faristadt Dobb. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Shrekist economy, worth 26.9 trillion Onions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 56,570 Onions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most ambassadors from Shrekistani retire only a few years after being appointed, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and the tribal zone has been opened to up to 'economic interest' groups. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shrekistani's national animal is the Shrek, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shrekistani is ranked 137,689th in the world and 182nd in Thaecia for Most Stationary, with 89.43083165312 days.
