The Holy Empire of Shreklsm is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 214 million Shrekists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.1%.

The thriving Shreklsmian economy, worth 15.1 trillion Shreks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 70,628 Shreks, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The world outside is only known of in folklore, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shreklsm's national animal is the Ogre, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Shreklsm is ranked 195,538th in the world and 1st in Holy Swamp for Largest Populations, with 214 million Capita.
