The Republic of The Universe of Shadows is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edano Yukio with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.947 billion Shadowins enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Zancuno. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowisian economy, worth 699 trillion Shadowisian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,445 Shadowisian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, bike rage is all the rage, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Universe of Shadows's national animal is the Lucario, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Universe of Shadows is ranked 90,591st in the world and 1,533rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Stationary, with 87.6375828008 Days.
