The Shadow Warrior

Population30.721 billion


The Shinobi of The Shadow Warrior is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.721 billion Shadow Warriors are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient a Shadow Warrior economy, worth a remarkable 5,373 trillion Kokus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 174,906 Kokus, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,599,568 per year while the poor average 2,074, a ratio of 771 to 1.

Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over The Shadow Warrior, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and the Great The Shadow Warrior Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Shadow Warrior's national animal is the Akita, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Shadow Warrior is ranked 177,836th in the world and 11th in Feudal Japan for Most Average, scoring 22.4 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
