Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos I with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.346 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czargorod. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Sparkvernian economy, worth a remarkable 1,857 trillion rubles 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 Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 222,524 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. 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 5th in The Chewlands and 105,861st in the world for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 0 Valid Endorsements.
