The Orange Federal Republic of Shavara is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Simón Arboleda with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.698 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 prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shara. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth 377 trillion Luk Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 222,256 Luk Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards, the Shavaran Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shavara's national animal is the Harpy Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Sanquis de Caelo Christianity.

Shavara is ranked 4,148th in the world and 113th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 557.82 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
