The People's Red Social Republic of Spavole is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sladko Jyedic with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 14.677 billion Spavoleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Budapest. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Spavolean economy, worth 761 trillion Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 51,894 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, Sladko Jyedic is adamant that ponies aren't just for little girls, government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spavole's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Spavole is ranked 39,927th in the world and 339th in The Communist Bloc for Most Influential, scoring 440 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
