The San Sierran Republic of Shavara is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Martín Espinar with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 4.837 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, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Defensa. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Shavaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,604 trillion Evirías 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 331,692 Evirías, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Eviría mansions. 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 111,871st in the world and 4,105th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 44.44 on the Rand Index.
