The Orange Federal Republic of Shavara is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Simón Arboleda with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.684 billion Shavarans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shara. The average income tax rate is 71.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth 375 trillion Luk Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 222,912 Luk Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, Shavaran farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and the police double as repo men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shavara's national animal is the Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sanquis de Caelo Christianity.

Shavara is ranked 146,229th in the world and 6,626th in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 54.53 Workforce Participation Rate.
