Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Shadowrik is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.42 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, Welfare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 58.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,107 trillion Rikaroes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 172,538 Rikaroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The police force is on a recruitment drive, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Shadowrik's radio stations, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Mahi Mahi. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 53,688th in the world and 2,713th in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,273.88 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
