The Republic of Shavara is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Salvador Manzanedo with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.254 billion Shavarans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth 570 trillion Luk Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 252,893 Luk Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shavara's national animal is the Harpy Eagle and its national religion is Sanquis de Caelo Christianity.

Shavara is ranked 158,609th in the world and 6,115th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
