The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 24.273 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of 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 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government pours millions of spannys into rehabilitation programs annually, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 5,086th in The North Pacific and 122,955th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -100 Whatever.
