The Ricky Spanish White Out of Shibutani is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.6 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 52.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,751 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 416,848 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,362,566 per year while the poor average 95,859, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

The Shibutani Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Shibutani at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, and body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms. Crime is totally unknown. Shibutani's national animal is the Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of the Cosmic Skull.

Shibutani is ranked 1,567th in the world and 59th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1,871 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
