The Feminine Feline Colony of Salems Den is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.814 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 medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing industries.

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 is a major problem. Salems Den's national animal is the Black Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Claw.

Salems Den is ranked 13th in Cat Burglars and 104,545th in the world for Best Weather, with -140 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
