The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.403 billion Spadestanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spadestan City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.

Anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spadestan's national animal is the giraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Spendme.

Spadestan is ranked 695th in The North Pacific and 17,619th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
