Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.641 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czargorod. The average income tax rate is 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sparkvernian economy, worth a remarkable 3,954 trillion novorubles a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 289,862 novorubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting a emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Sparkvernian emissions at all, straight-edges are forced to collect rain water to avoid getting high off the water supply, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 2,248th in the world and 1st in The Chewlands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
