The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.484 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, Welfare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Healthcare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but underdeveloped Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 4,357 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 147,805 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, Span's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
