The Holy Empire Sol of ShyVini is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Vincent with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 891 million ShyVinians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terra. The average income tax rate is 17.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse ShyVinian economy, worth 109 trillion Bitcoins 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. 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 impressive 123,427 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Fruit vendors are encouraging a life of crime in their advertising, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem, and criminals are thrown to the Dinosaurs to repay their debt to society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ShyVini's national animal is the Dinosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ShyVini is ranked 21,801st in the world and 537th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Poor Incomes, with 69,662.42 Standard Monetary Units.
