The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.674 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, although Environment, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Healthcare and Industry aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 4.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Spanner economy, worth 481 trillion spannies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 18,042 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
