The Very Lovely Sultanate of Splang is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Master of the Ordnance with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.343 billion, 11.24 billion of whom are zombies, Splangians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Citizens select which government department gets their income tax eyebrows each year, strategic bombers are being converted into preschools, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown. Splang's national animal is the armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the eyebrow.
Splang is currently considering its options.
