The Democratic Republic of Shibutani is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 504 million Shibutanians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MAYA. The average income tax rate is 15.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth 60.5 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,014 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-dollar mansions, paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shibutani's national animal is the Wolf.

Shibutani is ranked 79,412th in the world and 4,693rd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 85.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
