The Free Land of Shirania is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 129 million Shiranians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Shiranian economy, worth 3.44 trillion Hours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 26,686 Hours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and all beauty contests have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shirania's national animal is the Kluku, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirania is ranked 203,333rd in the world and 4,615th in the West Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 25.82 Insults Per Minute.
