The Shrekacratic Ogres Republic of VlaRiSsiA is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Eternal Omnipotent Leader Shrek with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.419 billion Ogres are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swampskow. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Shrekist economy, worth a remarkable 1,146 trillion O N I O NS 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 335,209 O N I O NS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Harry Potter books are banned, just as students finish their homework it's time for school, news editors who eschew the state-approved superlatives for describing Supreme Eternal Omnipotent Leader Shrek tend to disappear, and the nation is under martial law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VlaRiSsiA's national animal is the Donkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shrekism.

VlaRiSsiA is ranked 16,013th in the world and 54th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Economic Output, with 1,146 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
