The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos I with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.648 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.

The government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, almost all of Sparkvernia's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, and the nation has a strict 'no marauding undead' law (Sparkvernia has found 2 easter eggs). 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 3rd in The Chewlands and 56,597th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 18 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
