The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.791 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, with Environment, Law & Order, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Healthcare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 41.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Spanner economy, worth 520 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 18,711 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Retirement homes are filled with foreign war criminals, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the government pours millions of spannies into rehabilitation programs annually, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Span's border. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
