The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.155 billion Spadestanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 86%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.

Police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Spadestan to be bombproof. Crime 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 4,135th in The North Pacific and 108,541st in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
