The Crepuscular Conspiracy of Princess Shadow is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.571 billion Raiders are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The all-consuming Princess Shadow economy, worth a remarkable 2,820 trillion Diamonds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 114,791 Diamonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,043,911 per year while the poor average 1,440, a ratio of 724 to 1.

Genetic research has been halted, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and international organisations everywhere are united in their condemnation of the nation's zombified military (Princess Shadow has found 1 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Princess Shadow's national animal is the Shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Princess Shadow is ranked 1,869th in the world and 1st in Unknown for Most Pro-Market, scoring 98.25 on the Rand Index.
