The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory vegetarianism, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 46.419 billion Spanners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Spanner economy, worth an astonishing 14,254 trillion spannies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 307,076 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Span is ranked 268th in the world and 19th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 99.37 years.
