The Ricky Spanish New Year of Shibutani is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.961 billion Shibutanians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

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 23.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth 406 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 207,441 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 675,868 per year while the poor average 47,932, a ratio of 14.1 to 1.

Zombie sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", news headlines usually include p-values, and residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts. 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 3,047th in the world and 111th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 675,868.62 Standard Monetary Units.
