The Empire of Shadow Commander is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Shadow Commander with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory gun ownership, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 4.042 billion Shadow Commanderians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Shadow Commanderian economy, worth 222 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,015 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadow Commander's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Pagan.

Shadow Commander is ranked 69,032nd in the world and 8th in U R N for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 80.83 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
