The Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.947 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 48.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,712 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 346,156 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,231,799 per year while the poor average 70,034, a ratio of 17.6 to 1.

The government is reining in public spending, women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, and government policy is dictated by The Church of the Cosmic Skull. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shibutani's national animal is the Zombie, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is The Church of the Cosmic Skull.

Shibutani is ranked 58,193rd in the world and 2,940th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 43.58 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
