The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, feral children, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.575 billion Shadowans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 19.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,680 trillion gold bars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 197,428 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mechanics are often exhausted by their work, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shadowrik's national animal is the Vampire Zombie Mahi Mahi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is blah.

Shadowrik is ranked 3,941st in the world and 230th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 146,024.9 Standard Monetary Units.
