The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos I with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.791 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."

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czargorod. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and the world outside is only known of in folklore. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Sparkvernia's national animal is the white hawk, its national religion is Tsarism, and its currency is the ruble.

Sparkvernia is ranked 1st in The Chewlands and 1,194th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 17 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
