The United Kingdom of Shagger is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its closed borders, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 802 million Shaggers are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 6.2%.

The thriving Shaggerian economy, worth 66.3 trillion Quid a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 82,648 Quid, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Contestants on Shagger's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Shaggerian politicians, and minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shagger's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Shagger is ranked 110,233rd in the world and 2,441st in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 375 billion Standard Monetary Units.
