The Republic of Spigitoh is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 563 million Spigitens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Etenfen. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Spigiten economy, worth 30.0 trillion Spirojkas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,337 Spirojkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and sniffer dogs are trained to follow clouds of fruity-smelling vapor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spigitoh's national animal is the Fin Spidgeter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spigitoh is ranked 146,019th in the world and 5,508th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.88 on the Rand Index.
