The Lucky Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by St Patrick with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.032 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, pro-business 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 54.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,094 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 440,016 Gold bars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,133,123 per year while the poor average 52,539, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

Sleeping on the job is recommended, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. 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 21,420th in the world and 372nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 40.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
