The Republic of Shadowrik is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, otherworldly petting zoo, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.86 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 is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Environment, and Defense 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 12.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,695 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 171,938 Rikaroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The state pays for care of easily preventable illnesses, graffiti graces every city's streets, Shadowan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and builders across Shadowrik are blocked up with orders for new public loos. 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 148,355th in the world and 7,471st in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 25.54 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
