The Republic of Shadowrik is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.418 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 Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 61.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,464 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 173,928 Rikaroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. 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 Mahi Mahi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is blah.

Shadowrik is ranked 17,945th in the world and 864th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,705.23 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
