The Very Lovely Sultanate of Splang is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Master of the Ordnance with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.33 billion 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.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.
The large but stagnant Splangian economy, worth 334 trillion eyebrows a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,671 eyebrows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Splang's national animal is the armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
