The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, aversion to nipples, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.973 billion Sparkvernians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czargorod. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sparkvernian economy, worth a remarkable 5,537 trillion novorubles a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 308,109 novorubles, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

To say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, babysitters are a thing of the past, and prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sparkvernia's national animal is the white hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tsarism.

Sparkvernia is ranked 4,346th in the world and 66th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 27 Valid Endorsements.
