The Federation of Sharkingo is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and lack of airports. The democratic population of 485 million Sharkingoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 19.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sharkingoan economy, worth 22.0 trillion tiburons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,289 tiburons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Sharkingo City, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, and gambling is outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sharkingo's national animal is the shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Sharkingo is ranked 62,005th in the world and 3,617th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 190.3 Prayers Per Hour.
