The Republic of Spindrifter is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 9.387 billion Spindrifterians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Spindrifterian economy, worth 254 trillion shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 27,085 shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spindrifter's national animal is the stray cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spindrifter is ranked 98,296th in the world and 18th in Nasicournia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 52.92 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
