The Indefatigable Fiefdom of Spunky Doughnut is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Lord Baron Glorious Folkes-Constant with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.741 billion Spunky Doughnutians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phartville. The average income tax rate is 100%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

Criminals are executed and their property seized, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Spunky Doughnut's national animal is the Mother-in-Law, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Cult Of Folkes-Constant, and its currency is the Blagger.

Spunky Doughnut is ranked 139th in the Pacific and 3,250th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 4.109 Stalins.
