The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.154 billion Shadowans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,184 trillion gold bars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 195,843 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Shadowrik, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, ghost regiments exist only on paper, and paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black. Crime, especially youth-related, is 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 67,689th in the world and 3,527th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,484.48 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
