The Dictatorship of Shahrukh is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its digital currency, avant-garde cinema, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 421 million Rookians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Troll City. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Shahrukhian economy, worth 35.8 trillion Gamercoins 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 84,917 Gamercoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shahrukh's national animal is the Hummingbird.

Shahrukh is ranked 205,595th in the world and 7,865th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 13.48 Atheism Rate.
