Location: The East Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Republic of Shavara is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Salvador Manzanedo with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.26 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth 572 trillion Luk Pesos 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 253,507 Luk Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

On-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shavara's national animal is the Harpy Eagle and its national religion is Sanquis de Caelo Christianity.

Shavara is ranked 159,326th in the world and 6,102nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -145.57 on the Hayek Index.
