The Estado Nacional Altuso of Shavara is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Enrique Manuel Calderón del Aguilero with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 8.747 billion San Sierrans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Defensa. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth a remarkable 2,783 trillion Evirías a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 318,206 Evirías, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, superfoods are often seen as supervillains, and violence is always the answer in Shavara. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shavara's national animal is the Defensan Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sanguis Faith.

Shavara is ranked 31,936th in the world and 1,581st in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 70.33 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
