The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos I with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.293 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 Defence, Healthcare, and Commerce. 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.

Euthanasia is legal, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and major internet servers have acquired citizenship. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Tsarism, and its currency is the ruble.

Sparkvernia is ranked 7th in The Chewlands and 98,852nd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 4 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
