Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.758 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important, while Healthcare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 4,480 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 155,786 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Span's radio stations, and the government pours millions of spannies into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Span is ranked 37,128th in the world and 1,506th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,340.27 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
