The Galactic Empire of Sperio is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Tiberius with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 9.441 billion Sperioans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sperioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,044 trillion Spires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,648 Spires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and being Supreme Leader Tiberius has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sperio's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nukeism.

Sperio is ranked 214,437th in the world and 155th in 21st Century Rome for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -267.8 on the Hayek Index.
