Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.841 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government 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 3,376 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 285,136 novorubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 929,008 per year while the poor average 65,885, a ratio of 14.1 to 1.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, citizens who don't meet government health standards are whisked away never to be seen again, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. 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 2,683rd in the world and 1st in The Chewlands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 16,189.91 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
