The Commonwealth of Distro-Spartica is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Cyrus with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.264 billion Sparticans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ingzington. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spartican economy, worth 153 trillion Etas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. Average income is an impressive 121,569 Etas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, love means always having to say you're sorry, untold millions of Etas are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, and teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Distro-Spartica's national animal is the Quail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Antism.

Distro-Spartica is ranked 7,944th in the world and 236th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,778.85 Tourists Per Hour.
