The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 13.484 billion Spadestanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
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 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Spadestanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,175 trillion Spendmes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,346 Spendmes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
