OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.459 billion Spansters 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Healthcare and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 83%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, and traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the spanny.

Span is ranked 4,630th in The North Pacific and 114,464th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -12 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
