The Junta del Ejército of Shavara is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Anastasia Moreno with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 7.474 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Defensa. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth a remarkable 2,352 trillion Evirías a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 314,776 Evirías, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and superfoods are often seen as supervillains. 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 Sanguis Faith.

Shavara is ranked 25,034th in the world and 880th in The East Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 129.2 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
