The Ricky Spanish of Shibutani is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.43 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 66.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,079 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 383,009 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Shibutani Blood Tithe, crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, and politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shibutani's national animal is the Zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Church of the Cosmic Skull.

Shibutani is ranked 199,840th in the world and 8,846th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.7 Crimes Per Hour.
