The Republic of Shavara is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Salvador Manzanedo with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.241 billion Shavarans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth 565 trillion Luk Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 252,442 Luk Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, Harpy Eagles with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, the Shavaran Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shavara's national animal is the Harpy Eagle and its national religion is Sanquis de Caelo Christianity.

Shavara is ranked 159,156th in the world and 6,086th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
