Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Shadowrik is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.13 billion Shadowans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 60.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,222 trillion Rikaroes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 171,389 Rikaroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Under love's heavy burden Prime Lord Shadow sinks lower in the political right's esteem, foreign powers often deal with problems that Shadowrik can't handle, money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Shadowrik's national animal is the Mahi Mahi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is blah.

Shadowrik is ranked 12,358th in the world and 563rd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 7,845.6 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
