Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Homeland of Sprits is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Spritsman IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.839 billion Spritslanders are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novo Sprity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Spritsian economy, worth 365 trillion numuns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 128,827 numuns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 712,275 per year while the poor average 11,750, a ratio of 60.6 to 1.

Ravers are having trouble getting used to blackcurrant squash instead of vodka, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Sprits's national animal is the triple-headed eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is state worship.

Sprits is ranked 185,319th in the world and 8th in Greater Streitland for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.82 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
