The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.11 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 9.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,582 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 196,991 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, military spending is on the increase, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. 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 53,764th in the world and 2,464th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 58.11 on the Rand Index.
