The Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.223 billion Shibutanians 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 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 54.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,899 trillion dollars 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 363,688 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,298,796 per year while the poor average 73,180, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

Sir Daniel's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, Shibutanian actors literally work from cradle to grave, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shibutani's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of the Cosmic Skull.

Shibutani is ranked 7,408th in the world and 263rd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 9,676.22 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
