Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.492 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 2,215 trillion novorubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 233,370 novorubles, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

The entire retail industry has been replaced by online delivery services, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, Sparkvernia's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, and the government snoops on private internet connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 7th in The Chewlands and 128,604th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -1,983 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
