The Autonomous City of The Shield of Democracy is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Wilson Von Miller with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.114 billion soldiers 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 large, corrupt, 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 Yorkshire. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.5%.

The frighteningly efficient soldier economy, worth 385 trillion Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 123,865 Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions, many suspect that the 'Whinny The Plop' children's magazine contains covert criticism of Wilson Von Miller, the traditional Violetist dish of stuffed sheep's head is served with an intense look of shock upon its face, and public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Shield of Democracy's national animal is the One eyed smelly snail, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Shield of Democracy is ranked 218,934th in the world and 245th in Holmond Holdings for Best Weather, with 79 meters of sunlight.
