Shadow Void

Population300 million



The Armed Republic of Shadow Void is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 300 million Shadow Voidians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voidow. The average income tax rate is 61.0%.

The strong Shadow Voidian economy, worth 20.8 trillion Shavoidows a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 69,490 Shavoidows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadow Void's national animal is the Shalvows, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shadow Void is ranked 55,826th in the world and 1,718th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 63.49 on the Human Development Index.
