|Leader||Walter J Peabody III|
The Nakedness of Sheelberite is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Walter J Peabody III with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 5.658 billion Sheelberites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bloodyoath. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Sheelberitean economy, worth 772 trillion dollarydoos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 136,608 dollarydoos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, the military struggles with recruitment, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and a positive pregnancy test doubles as a visa. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sheelberite's national animal is the Flamin' Codswallop, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pantheism.
