The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.825 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but underdeveloped Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 3,988 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 133,745 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
