The Former Republic of Shiemetzu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chiji Mitsue Okushito with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.372 billion Shiemenoas 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miyaneteshi. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shiemenuan economy, worth 347 trillion chenous 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 dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 102,978 chenous, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chiji Mitsue Okushito's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and foreign musicians that Chiji Mitsue Okushito dislikes are turned away at the border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shiemetzu's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shinto.

Shiemetzu is ranked 40,757th in the world and 1,255th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,613.66 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
