The Greater Empire of Shintoese is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Saka-Nushuzumi with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.294 billion Shintoese 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akishi Metropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Shintoese economy, worth 400 trillion Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,580 Yen, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shintoese's national animal is the Green Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinbutsu-shūgō.

Shintoese is ranked 199,902nd in the world and 9,840th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 15.14 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
