The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 13.257 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 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Spadestanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,091 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 157,758 Spendmes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
The nation leads The North Pacific in per capita stalking, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance. 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.
