Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Shadowrik is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.457 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, although Industry, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 60.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,252 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 167,960 Rikaroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The police force is on a recruitment drive, Shadowrik's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 3,872nd in the world and 189th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 402.94 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
