The Grey Havens of Shaizan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.558 billion Elves have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osgiliath. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaizanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,214 trillion Tharnis a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,786 Tharnis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shaizan's national animal is the Great Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shaizan is ranked 9,461st in the world and 27th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,773.86 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
