The Indefatigable Fiefdom of Spunky Doughnut is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Lord Baron Glorious Folkes-Constant with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.734 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phartville. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Spunky Doughnutian economy, worth an astonishing 11,026 trillion Blaggers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 485,016 Blaggers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,502,204 per year while the poor average 120,650, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Spunky Doughnut's national animal is the Mother-in-Law, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult Of Folkes-Constant.

Spunky Doughnut is ranked 28th in the Pacific and 1,812th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
