LeaderAndrzej Szymanski


The Republic of Speke is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Andrzej Szymanski with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.425 billion Spekes enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sczesczołiszin. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Speke economy, worth 910 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,035 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The internal market is thriving, Speke novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Andrzej Szymanski, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and no one born in Speke can fix a leaky faucet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Speke's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Speke is ranked 130,602nd in the world and 66th in Anteria for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 127,922 Standard Monetary Units.
