The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.649 billion Spanners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Healthcare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but underdeveloped Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 4,535 trillion spannies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,986 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, the nation leads The North Pacific in per capita stalking, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Spanner lands. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
