OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.41 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, Commerce, 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 explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Sparkvernia, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, and the government is funneling billions into Cape Sparkvernia following the shuttle crash. 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 4th in The Chewlands and 63,568th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 16 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
