The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 30.353 billion Spanners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Healthcare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but inefficient Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 5,187 trillion spannies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,911 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, euthanasia is illegal, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and Span's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
