The Republic of Shadowrik is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Lord Shadow with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.581 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, with Defense, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. 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 2,681 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 4,947th in the world and 184th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 10,511.33 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
