The Violent Theocracy of Shuckle Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Xiānzhī with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.803 billion Oviumists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xiānzhī City. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oviumist economy, worth 786 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 206,753 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Air Shuckle Empire is rumored to receive more government funding than the Oviumist Air Force, the endangered saltwater humpback Government Surveillance Drone is only seen in captivity programs, the recently liberated free press cautiously uses compliment sandwiches to cushion its criticisms of Xiānzhī, and classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shuckle Empire's national animal is the Government Surveillance Drone, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shucklism.

Shuckle Empire is ranked 25,517th in the world and 845th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,085.81 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
