The Socialist Republic of The Central Shadow Nation is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Yuri Pyutonov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 9.107 billion Shadownians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ridora. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadownian economy, worth a remarkable 1,101 trillion Snake Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,902 Snake Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, many junior high school teachers minor in midwifery, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Central Shadow Nation's national animal is the Sea Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Central Shadow Nation is ranked 156,542nd in the world and 3rd in The International Assembly of Nations for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 43.63 Workforce Participation Rate.
