The Dominion of Shadow-Land is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 350 million Shadow-Landians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadow-Falls. The average income tax rate is 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Shadow-Landian economy, worth 22.9 trillion Guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,486 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, Leader has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadow-Land's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shadow-Land is ranked 46,285th in the world and 1,847th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,327.44 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
