The Shadow Sokovia Union of Shadow Dealer is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Shadow Dealer with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 859 million Shadows 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crime city. The average income tax rate is 39.9%.

The powerhouse Shadow economy, worth 85.5 trillion Shadow noteses a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 99,476 Shadow noteses, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, a mountain of discarded sofas and beds is incinerated every day, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadow Dealer's national animal is the Crow, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Shadow Dealer is ranked 42,989th in the world and 2,042nd in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 40,307.58 Standard Monetary Units.
