The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 14.964 billion Shadowans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 3.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,891 trillion gold bars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 193,216 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Torture is illegal, the sun now sets on the Shadowan Empire, auditors are gutting every governmental department, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shadowrik's national animal is the Vampire Zombie Mahi Mahi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is blah.

Shadowrik is ranked 171,186th in the world and 6,942nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.26 Obesity Rate.
