OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.095 billion Spansters 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.

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 76%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, protests are legal but strictly supervised, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. 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 4,073rd in The North Pacific and 112,488th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -1,290.6 Insults Per Minute (net).
