Outer Sparta

LeaderAlexi Palas


The Kingdom of Outer Sparta is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alexi Palas with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.076 billion Spartans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparta City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Spartan economy, worth a remarkable 8,498 trillion Sparts a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 445,490 Sparts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Spartan novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Alexi Palas, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, Alexi Palas's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, and lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outer Sparta's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Outer Sparta is ranked 287,280th in the world and 1,373rd in Europe for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -28.25 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
