Shibutani II

Population3.74 billion

The Republic of Shibutani II is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.74 billion Shibutani IIians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutani IIian economy, worth 663 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 177,377 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, Shibutani II's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, and the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Leader Pics" has made Leader's mom a celebrity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shibutani II's national animal is the zombie.

Shibutani II is ranked 59,921st in the world and 2,233rd in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 63.51 Insults Per Minute.
