The Dominion of Spiritbw is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Daimyo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.456 billion Spiritites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Edo. The average income tax rate is 13.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spiritbwian economy, worth a remarkable 1,700 trillion Yen a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,091 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All footpaths have tollbooths, copyright laws have been abolished, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through the Daimyo's window to draw attention to their issues. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Spiritbw's national animal is the Wolverine, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shinto.

Spiritbw is ranked 178,480th in the world and 1,386th in 10000 Islands for Fattest Citizens, with 2.31 Obesity Rate.
