The United States of Shauvania is a huge, pleasant nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, devout population of 625 million Shauvanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shauvania City. The average income tax rate is 31.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Shauvanian economy, worth 15.7 trillion Shauvanian Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 25,185 Shauvanian Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Amnesty Interregional has condemned Shauvania for ignoring crimes against humanity, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, military funding has been stripped back, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Shauvania's national animal is the Shauvanian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Shauvania is ranked 245,647th in the world and 10,924th in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
