The Retired Warlord of TempestShadow is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.109 billion TempestShadowians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53.3%.

The TempestShadowian economy, worth 157 trillion Bits a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,751 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TempestShadow's national animal is the Alicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

TempestShadow is ranked 91,999th in the world and 3,425th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 888.28 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
