The Dictatorship of Spiruvania is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lilith Ta Diktatora with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.06 billion Spiruvanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leadertopia. The average income tax rate is 91.1%.

The powerhouse Spiruvanian economy, worth 951 trillion Spiras 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 188,073 Spiras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spiruvania's national animal is the Winged-Serpent, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Spiruvania is ranked 263,627th in the world and 12,362nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -252.13 on the Hayek Index.
