The Federal Republic of Shadow Metropolis is a huge, safe nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, devout population of 625 million Shadow Metropolisians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadow Gang. The average income tax rate is 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Shadow Metropolisian economy, worth 57.1 trillion SMDS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 91,408 SMDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadow Metropolis's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shadow Metropolis is ranked 127,050th in the world and 3rd in Lisseum for Most Extreme, scoring 16.63 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
