The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 9.471 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
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. The average income tax rate is 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.
Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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.
