The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 72 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its ritual sacrifices, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.664 billion Spice Harvester 72ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Spice Harvester 72ian economy, worth 213 trillion spices 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Retail, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. 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 80,290 spices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children fear compulsory visits to their spiritual advisors more than the dentist, the children of Spice Harvester 72 are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spice Harvester 72's national animal is the sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spice Harvester 72 is ranked 13,474th in the world and 31st in Chicken overlords for Largest Black Market, with 55.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
