The Holy Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.25 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, although Environment, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 18.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,788 trillion gold bars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 174,529 gold bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, the tightness of border controls in Shadowrik leave a little to be desired, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. 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 leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Irish blah.

Shadowrik is ranked 20,870th in the world and 1,022nd in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,139.53 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
