The Kingdom of Shoinkwishima is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Donte with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.431 billion Shoinkwishimen 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Louis. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shoinkwishiman economy, worth 201 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,940 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation excels at displacement, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shoinkwishima's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whatever.

Shoinkwishima is ranked 49,339th in the world and 1,481st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,005.36 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
