The Commonwealth of Shoila is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The President with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, flagrant waste-dumping, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.57 billion Shoilians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antaburra. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shoilian economy, worth 328 trillion Shols a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,004 Shols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Shoila's radio stations, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, and the government is avowedly secular. Crime is totally unknown. Shoila's national animal is the Serval, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Godsinia.

Shoila is ranked 131,766th in the world and 138th in Thaecia for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.67 Crimes Per Hour.
