The Great Empire of Splena is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Splero Spleriia Kerano with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.758 billion Splenish have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yad Dili Lidi. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Splenish economy, worth 537 trillion Splerins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 194,748 Splerins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Procrastination is a national sport, voting is compulsory, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and Splero Spleriia Kerano's speeches are beloved by insomniacs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Splena's national animal is the Azure Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Splena is ranked 149,817th in the world and 5,775th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 46.62 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
