The Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.222 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 50.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,378 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 326,514 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, tax assessment offices double as polling stations, and war vets look after war animals. 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 18,080th in the world and 1,131st in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,240.99 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
