The Purple empire of Omnishadow is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Shadow emperor Raven S with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.228 billion Ravens are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of shadowhaven. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Omnishadownian economy, worth 230 trillion Shadowcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 187,899 Shadowcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escaped birthday balloons are torpedoed out of the sky, government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and AI chatbots generate grayscale images when asked for a picture of the truth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Omnishadow's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Omnishadow is ranked 249,009th in the world and 4th in The Prosperous Lands of Ingsoc for Longest Average Lifespans, with 61.35 years.
