The Lucky Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by St Patrick with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.902 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 54.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,031 trillion Gold bars 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 439,158 Gold bars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,596,721 per year while the poor average 85,938, a ratio of 18.6 to 1.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, many of the poor live from cradle to grave without ever seeing sunlight, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs. Crime is totally unknown. Shibutani's national animal is the leprechaun, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of the Cosmic Skull.

Shibutani is ranked 5,973rd in the world and 371st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.11 on the Human Development Index.
