Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.106 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. 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 3,072 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 276,645 novorubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 939,471 per year while the poor average 60,100, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

The government is spending billions of novorubles on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, the nation's reinforced coffee tables are constructed to survive an atomic blast, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. 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 16,319th in the world and 4th in The Chewlands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 105.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
