The Syrian Democratic Forces of Shibutani is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.279 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 30.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shibutanian economy, worth 869 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 265,178 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 800,319 per year while the poor average 68,456, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, child labor has been outlawed, fistfighting vigilantes tend to suffer a lot of gunshot wounds, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shibutani's national animal is the Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of the Cosmic Skull.

Shibutani is ranked 139,885th in the world and 7,081st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring zero on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
