The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos I with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.93 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 Commerce, Defence, 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.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Sparkvernia's national animal is the white hawk, its national religion is Tsarism, and its currency is the ruble.

Sparkvernia is ranked 3rd in The Chewlands and 1,881st in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
