The Togolese Republic of Speyland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Annemiek Blokvoord with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.134 billion Speylandiers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 7.0%.

The powerhouse Speylandian economy, worth 203 trillion Speylandier guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,519 Speylandier guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and urban citizens are forced onto public transport while rural citizens ride horses and buggies. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Speyland's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Urigrism.

Speyland is ranked 51,298th in the world and 64th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,272.7 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
