The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.842 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spadestan City. The average income tax rate is 86%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.

The nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the Spendme.

Spadestan is ranked 91st in The North Pacific and 3,061st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 41 on the Enoch Index.
