The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 423 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.633 billion Spice Harvester 423ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.0%.

The powerhouse Spice Harvester 423ian economy, worth 170 trillion spices a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,569 spices, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, and denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom. Crime is moderate. Spice Harvester 423's national animal is the sandworm.

Spice Harvester 423 is ranked 22,741st in the world and 332nd in Chicken overlords for Largest Black Market, with 15.9 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
