Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.464 billion Sparkvernians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czargorod. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sparkvernian economy, worth a remarkable 3,146 trillion novorubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 274,460 novorubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,039,326 per year while the poor average 50,370, a ratio of 20.6 to 1.

Adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, 'dead men tell no tales' is a valid legal defense, foreign nationals are widely distrusted, and geosynchronous satellites are now manned by unpaid interns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Sparkvernia's national animal is the white hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tsarism.

Sparkvernia is ranked 1,660th in the world and 2nd in The Chewlands for Highest Average Incomes, with 274,460.93 Standard Monetary Units.
