The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 14.543 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 35.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,973 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 204,490 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, surveillance cameras are banned, and clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions. 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 18,566th in the world and 1,002nd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,409.59 Tourists Per Hour.
