|Leader||M Shobacus Maz|
The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 32.555 billion Spanners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 6,564 trillion spannies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 201,645 spannies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
A byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, the tragedy of the commons is being tested nationwide but everyone says it's somebody else's problem, workers have seized control of the economy, and the government has legalised small-scale capitalism. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
