The Kingdom of Stoney Shores is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its burgeoning Black Widow population. The hard-working, democratic population of 6.584 billion Stoney Shoresians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The very strong Stoney Shoresian economy, worth 385 trillion Latinums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 58,615 Latinums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 188,754 per year while the poor average 13,778, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Harry Potter books are banned, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, organ donation is compulsory, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Stoney Shores's national animal is the Black Widow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stoney Shores is ranked 166,583rd in the world and 33rd in Xedas for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
