The Empire of Great Sheriffdom is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mistermind Sheriffdom with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.915 billion Sheriffdomians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Imperium. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheriffdom economy, worth 742 trillion Bytes 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 189,679 Bytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sheriffdom Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Sheriffdom's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Sheriffdom is ranked 5,404th in the world and 128th in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with 280 Meters Of Sunlight.
