The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 96 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its fear of technology, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.755 billion Spice Harvester 96ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 22.7%.

The Spice Harvester 96ian economy, worth 82.6 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, Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 47,067 spices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, and protecting the land is holey work. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Spice Harvester 96's national animal is the sandworm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Spice Harvester 96 is ranked 201,635th in the world and 10,081st in Chicken overlords for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -8.06 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
