Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Shadowrik is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.767 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, although Industry, Defense, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 61.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,164 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 172,131 Rikaroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, casino tax breaks are even bigger than their jackpots, military spending is on the increase, and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. 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 31,742nd in the world and 1,380th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,213.52 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
