The Imperial Tsardom of Sparkvernia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsar Kasimir Sparkos with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, prohibition of alcohol, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.711 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czargorod. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sparkvernian economy, worth a remarkable 4,153 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 282,308 novorubles, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. 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 46,607th in the world and 2nd in The Chewlands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.05 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
