The FNR God-Emperor of Sparsdan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dadoun with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.54 billion Humans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guinness. The average income tax rate is 7.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Human economy, worth 638 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 115,300 beers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 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 37,973rd in the world and 58th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Economic Output, with 638 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
