The Republic of Shadow Soldier is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Shadow Guy with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.29 billion Shadow SoldierSoldiers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of unionville. The average income tax rate is 45.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Shadow Soldierian economy, worth 543 trillion Silver Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,481 Silver Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shadow Guy's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, adultery has been made a capital offence, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadow Soldier's national animal is the Raven, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Pagan.

Shadow Soldier is ranked 202,583rd in the world and 1st in The Empire of South Pacific Islands for Most Secular, with 10.88 Atheism Rate.
