The People's Republic of Shishiro is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Shishiro Botan with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.396 billion Shishiroans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Botan. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Shishiroan economy, worth 96.0 trillion Shishiroan Yen 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, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 68,779 Shishiroan Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nations that kill a Shishiroan can expect a strongly worded letter, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Botan, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and tightly packed choir-boys sing the god-given joys of heterosexuality on public transport. Crime is totally unknown. Shishiro's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shishiro is ranked 251,972nd in the world and 11,931st in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -91.05 on the Hayek Index.
