The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 13.095 billion Spadestanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spadestan City. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Spadestanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,061 trillion Spendmes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,435 Spendmes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, and Spadestan's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.
