The United Socialist States of Shiroiyuki is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 215 million Shiroiyukis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 59.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Shiroiyuki economy, worth 4.52 trillion akaihonōs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 21,022 akaihonōs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shiroiyuki's national animal is the snowy owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shiroiyuki is ranked 113,006th in the world and 4,760th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,018.68 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
