The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.585 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowrik City. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,971 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 186,238 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime Lord Shadow's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, and interest in globalism never flags. Crime, especially youth-related, is 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 1,113th in the world and 64th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.13 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
