The Empire of Great Shadowland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 406 million Great Shadowies 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.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowcity. The average income tax rate is 43.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Great Shadowlandian economy, worth 35.9 trillion Shadowbits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,309 Shadowbits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Shadowland's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Shadowland is ranked 9,603rd in the world and 292nd in 10000 Islands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 4 Valid Endorsements.
