The Protectorate of Spitfire 1 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 437 million Spitfire 1ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 19.0%.

The Spitfire 1ian economy, worth 25.0 trillion km flyeds 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 a large, well-organized black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. 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 57,160 km flyeds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Army gunpowder stores are being commandeered to make pretty fireworks and sparklers, government ministers claim to ride dragons to work, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Spitfire 1 City. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Spitfire 1's national animal is the kerosine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spitfire 1 is ranked 137,239th in the world and 8,071st in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 10.77 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
