The Shadowlands of Shadyrya is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Arys with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.85 billion Shadyryans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterfell. The average income tax rate is 41%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Shadyrya's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, Lord Arys has just been declared ruler of Shadyrya in an international press conference, 'removal of the heart' is the most common cause of death, and genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape. Crime is moderate. Shadyrya's national animal is the Direwolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, its national religion is The Old Gods, and its currency is the Stag.

Shadyrya is ranked 725th in Balder and 27,554th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.909 Stalins.
