The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.925 billion Shadowans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,803 trillion gold bars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 201,341 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, voting is voluntary, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shadowrik's national animal is the Vampire Zombie Mahi Mahi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is blah.

Shadowrik is ranked 19,395th in the world and 738th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14,004.74 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
