The Constitutional Monarchy of Sparta Laconia is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 29 million Spartans enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The fragile Spartan economy, worth 660 billion Drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 22,779 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Computers are used primarily for word processing and solitaire, a life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Spartan grocery store, and it's said that any enemy of democracy is a friend to Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sparta Laconia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sparta Laconia is ranked 242,555th in the world and 251st in The Free Nations Region for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.71 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
