The Federal Republic of Shadow Metropolis is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President George And Vice President Cote with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 768 million Shadow Metropolisians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bir Tawil. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Shadow Metropolisian economy, worth 72.4 trillion SMDS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 94,246 SMDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air Shadow Metropolis flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and Shadow Metropolisian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about President George And Vice President Cote. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shadow Metropolis's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shadow Metropolis is ranked 205,617th in the world and 7th in Lisseum for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.54 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
