The Oppressed Peoples of Spellbinders is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.292 billion Spellbindersians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 54.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Spellbindersian economy, worth 11.1 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 8,585 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spellbinders's national animal is the Joey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spellbinders is ranked 236,140th in the world and 23rd in Australia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.06 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
