The Shadow Confederation

Population5.927 billion

LeaderThe Great Elder
FaithThe Church of Lulz


The Armed Republic of The Shadow Confederation is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Great Elder with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.927 billion Shadows hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Za'ha'dum. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shadowy economy, worth 894 trillion Amusements a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 150,894 Amusements, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The election for The Great Elder's office's janitor is heating up, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Amusements each year, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Shadow Confederation's national animal is the Nurgling, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Lulz.

The Shadow Confederation is ranked 14,862nd in the world and 7th in Weyard for Largest Governments, scoring 28.71 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
