The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.89 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, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important, while Healthcare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but underdeveloped Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 4,298 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 148,771 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', all 'unconventional' weaponry has been banned, the nation's peacekeeping efforts usually comes with a healthy dose of pillaging, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
