The Republic of Spooponia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Top Yeti with a fair hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.89 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Commerce, although Healthcare and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noevus Urbem. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales industries.
A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, and 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Spooponia's national animal is the Yeti, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Shendo.
