The Queendom of Shad0ws is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 438 million Shad0ws are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 59.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Shad0wy economy, worth 14.4 trillion Deutsche Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is 32,929 Deutsche Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the white rabbit is a protected species, Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shad0ws's national animal is the white rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shad0ws is ranked 153,573rd in the world and 93rd in Caer Sidi for Most Stationary, with 57.01213712332 days.
