OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.751 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 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the nation leads The North Pacific in per capita stalking, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. 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 173rd in The North Pacific and 7,541st in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 79 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
