The Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.228 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 56.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,915 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 366,341 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,278,692 per year while the poor average 76,346, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

The Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing. 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 46,927th in the world and 2,061st in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 61.11 on the Rand Index.
