The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.462 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 tiny, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Healthcare and Industry receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Spanner economy, worth 475 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 17,968 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
