The San Sierran Republic of Shavara is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Martín Espinar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 4.671 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 Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Defensa. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,566 trillion Pesetas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 335,303 Pesetas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, meteorologists are instantly recognizable from their luxury cars and jewelry, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. 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 Sanquis Catholicism.

Shavara is ranked 8,424th in the world and 194th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,606.79 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
