The City and District of Shurdington is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prince George with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, devout population of 1.605 billion Shurdingtonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Claire. The average income tax rate is 35.9%.

The all-consuming Shurdingtonian economy, worth 109 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 68,416 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

School uniforms are compulsory, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas. Crime is totally unknown. Shurdington's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Church of Shurdington.

Shurdington is ranked 217,402nd in the world and 17th in The Localist Alliance for Most Avoided, scoring 0.5 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
