The Free Land of Shusio is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shuia with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 920 million Shusioans 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 Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shu. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Shusioan economy, worth 80.0 trillion Shusian Coins 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 86,996 Shusian Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists, third world countries are rich in "I Love Shu" t-shirts, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shusio's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Shusio is ranked 62,586th in the world and 60th in Africa for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,125.39 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
