The San Sierran Republic of Shavara is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Raúl Vera with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.107 billion San Sierrans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Defensa. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,277 trillion Pesetas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 311,085 Pesetas, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

The fate of the world literally rests on Raúl Vera's fingers, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the nation leads The East Pacific in per capita stalking, and cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shavara's national animal is the Defensan Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sanquis Catholicism.

Shavara is ranked 143,768th in the world and 6,179th in The East Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 18,354.06 Standard Monetary Units.
