The Dominion of Sparsdan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dadoun with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.826 billion Humans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guinness. The average income tax rate is 5.0%.

The all-consuming Human economy, worth 319 trillion beers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 113,188 beers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, Guinness has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The Free Nations Region, corruption is a game of two halves, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Guinness. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sparsdan's national animal is the chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is FNRism.

Sparsdan is ranked 98,060th in the world and 212th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,587.72 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
