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 complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.177 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 tiny, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Industry receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 3.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Spanner economy, worth 463 trillion spannies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 17,722 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Anti-government web sites are springing up, the populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, and the government funds large training centres to turn donkeys into functioning members of society. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
