The Most Serene Republic of Spadestan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 11.977 billion Spadestanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
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 40.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Spadestanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,820 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 151,974 Spendmes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, it's always rabbit season, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.
Spadestan is ranked 183rd in The North Pacific and 5,936th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 662 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
