The Feminine Feline Colony of Salems Den is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.96 billion Shadows are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient a Shadow economy, worth a remarkable 1,715 trillion Claws a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 101,120 Claws, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 578,204 per year while the poor average 8,552, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Salems Den's many privately-owned prisons, teenage fathers are forced to join the army, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and the Black Panther is believed to be extinct. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force. Salems Den's national animal is the Black Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Salems Den is ranked 12th in Cat Burglars and 108,598th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -390.65 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
