The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.295 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, while Healthcare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but underdeveloped Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 4,301 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 146,838 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, eminent domain has been abolished, and military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
