Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.274 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 3,135 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 278,088 novorubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 938,024 per year while the poor average 61,028, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Emigrants arrive on foreign shores with nothing but pocket sand, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, and army rations are served on silver platters. 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 2,219th in the world and 2nd in The Chewlands for Largest Black Market, with 310 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
