The Federal Republic of Shadow National is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Jake with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.106 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 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 32.5%.
The all-consuming Shadow Nationalian economy, worth 121 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 109,747 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.
Powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Shadow National's radio stations, and many in Shadow National are born in the purple. 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.
