The Republic of Spari is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jody Silva with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.124 billion Sparians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anbuling. The average income tax rate is 5.6%.

The thriving Sparian economy, worth 208 trillion lire a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 66,645 lire, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Jody Silva's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Anbuling to enjoy their national art, and troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Spari's national animal is the crocodile, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Saranism.

Spari is ranked 48,174th in the world and 126th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 27.81 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
