The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 15.159 billion Shadowans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,970 trillion gold bars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 195,926 gold bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up, and graffiti graces every city's streets. 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 Vampire Zombie Mahi Mahi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is blah.

Shadowrik is ranked 2,184th in the world and 145th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 315.11 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
