The Lucky Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Daniel with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.286 billion Shibutanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MAYA. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,233 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 443,815 Bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,546,420 per year while the poor average 92,737, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare Bitcoins. Crime is totally unknown. Shibutani's national animal is the zombie and its national religion is The Church of the Cosmic Skull.

Shibutani is ranked 229,754th in the world and 8,845th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -900.02 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
