Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.429 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 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 2,728 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 261,605 novorubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 767,606 per year while the poor average 70,282, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, conspiracy theorists allege Czargorod's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings, and newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent. 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 3rd in The Chewlands and 49,193rd in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 30 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
