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 daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.283 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 18.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Spanner economy, worth 502 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 18,412 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children are raised bilingual from an early age, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, eminent domain has been abolished, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
