The Republic of Shadowrik is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.307 billion Shadowans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Environment 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 9.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,566 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 168,348 Rikaroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Billion-Rikaro sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, prison visits increase substantially during election years, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies. 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 155,239th in the world and 9,265th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 6.02 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
