Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.863 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, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czargorod. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Sparkvernian economy, worth a remarkable 2,034 trillion novorubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which 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. Average income is an amazing 229,511 novorubles, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, and the nation has declared war on all passing comets. 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 4,619th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 23 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
