The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 30.904 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but inefficient Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 5,029 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 162,758 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
