The Violent Theocracy of Shuckle Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Xiānzhī with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.222 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, moralistic, 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 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oviumist economy, worth 878 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 207,969 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, pootling steam trains carry delighted tourists and frustrated businessmen from city to city at a snail's pace, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, and having skeletons in one's closet is no longer just a macabre idiom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 57,843rd in the world and 1,904th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,185.55 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
