The Shuriken Shotgunner of Shadoke is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 13.908 billion Shadokons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Environment, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 38.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Shadoken economy, worth 435 trillion Crimson Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,306 Crimson Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars are banned, the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, the nation's cuisine is the laughing stock of The Brotherhood of Malice, and funding for education has been redirected into the military. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadoke's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shadoke is ranked 223,171st in the world and 134th in The Brotherhood of Malice for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -2.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
