The Matriarchy of Spinel D-Cut 9 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 577 million Spinels 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient your best friend economy, worth 29.2 trillion garden flowers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 50,540 garden flowers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Community centers have arisen from the ashes of demolished houses of worship, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spinel D-Cut 9's national animal is the pink pearl.

Spinel D-Cut 9 is ranked 192,510th in the world and 5,157th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 29.0 billion Standard Monetary Units.
