The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.211 billion Spansters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Healthcare and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, euthanasia is illegal, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the spanny.

Span is ranked 1st in The North Pacific and 8th in the world for Best Weather, with 3,780 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
