The Federal Republic of Shadow National is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Jake with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.093 billion Shadow Nationalians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardone City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.9%.
The all-consuming Shadow Nationalian economy, worth 116 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 106,744 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.
TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore, and goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadow National's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shadow Nationalism.
