The Kingdom of Spankitopia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.396 billion Spankitopians 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.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The strong Spankitopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,255 trillion Paddles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 68,253 Paddles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 464,042 per year while the poor average 3,667, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Crime is moderate. Spankitopia's national animal is the Piglet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spankitopia is ranked 9,374th in the world and 249th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 464,042 Standard Monetary Units.
