The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 30.048 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but underdeveloped Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 4,545 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 151,271 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation has nearly as many history museums as Spanners, recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
