Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.357 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 55.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spadestanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,933 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 156,505 Spendmes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up. 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.

Spadestan is ranked 6,464th in The North Pacific and 107,666th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
