The Empire of Spectare is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jezebel Phoenix with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.125 billion Spectarians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel Grove. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Spectarean economy, worth a remarkable 9,592 trillion Spects a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 341,073 Spects, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,406,940 per year while the poor average 16,290, a ratio of 147 to 1.

Military spending recently hit a new high, even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, in a fit of passion Jezebel Phoenix has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and Angel Grove is a police state during international summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Spectare's national animal is the Phoenician Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Logic.

Spectare is ranked 1,291st in the world and 2nd in Greater Prussia for Highest Average Incomes, with 341,073.14 Standard Monetary Units.
