The Imperial State of Shark-istan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Robert I with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.959 billion Citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gracidaea. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 3,818 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 426,197 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,971,992 per year while the poor average 4,088, a ratio of 971 to 1.

Citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, the country is preparing for war, frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, and denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Shark-istan's national animal is the Great white shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the church of glorious ruler.

Shark-istan is ranked 78th in the world and 1st in Gracidaea for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 971.57 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
