The Retired Warlord of TempestShadow is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, enslaved workforce, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.846 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.8%.

The TempestShadowian economy, worth 236 trillion Bits a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 48,829 Bits, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 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 113,781st in the world and 3,971st in Lazarus for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 906.94 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
