The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 14.273 billion Spadestanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
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 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Spadestanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,324 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 162,884 Spendmes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
The country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and Tourism facilities are being turned into giraffe habitats. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.
