The Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.691 billion Shibutanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 60.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,238 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 393,262 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,562,924 per year while the poor average 66,739, a ratio of 23.4 to 1.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Shibutanians any less frightened, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens. 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 1,065th in the world and 36th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 17,313.05 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
