The Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.06 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 53.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,477 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. Average income is an amazing 408,830 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,323,424 per year while the poor average 95,371, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

The secret ingredient is love (and MSG), the 'sing-a-long with Sir Daniel' album is a popular souvenir, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime 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 1,650th in the world and 77th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 54,408.13 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
