The Indefatigable Fiefdom of Spunky Doughnut is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Lord Baron Glorious Folkes-Constant with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.143 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.

The government's only official statement on the burning down of Phartville was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Spunky Doughnut after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers. 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 3,966th in the Pacific and 112,977th in the world for Best Weather, with -4,191 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
