The Federation of Mount Shavano is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Morgan Dawson with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 24.509 billion Federations 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, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Angelo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Mount Shavanoan economy, worth a remarkable 3,453 trillion angels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 140,887 angels, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 825,340 per year while the poor average 11,261, a ratio of 73.3 to 1.

Executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Mount Shavano's national animal is the trike, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Christian faith.

Mount Shavano is ranked 17,075th in the world and 22nd in Gholgoth for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 17,984.75 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
