The Kingdom of Shadoni is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lord General Aladeen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.278 billion Shadonians 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 relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fairwind. The average income tax rate is 8.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Shadonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,837 trillion Doubloons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 221,995 Doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadoni's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Shadoni is ranked 234,210th in the world and 629th in Carcassonne for Most Pro-Market, scoring 23.22 on the Rand Index.
