The Ghost of Spartzerium is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.231 billion Spartzerians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spartz City. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Spartzerian economy, worth 662 trillion spartzers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 50,043 spartzers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, and the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spartzerium's national animal is the Spartzy, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Spartzerium is ranked 123,755th in the world and 266th in The Black Hawks for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 21 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
