The Reunited Land of The Shadow Republik is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rogue Shadow with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.804 billion Shadow Republikians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadow City. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Shadow Republikian economy, worth a remarkable 2,061 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 210,265 credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and money grows on trees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Shadow Republik's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is atheism.

The Shadow Republik is ranked 4,968th in the world and 251st in Lazarus for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 42,111.62 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
