The 'Lizard Haven' of SPode humbleD Minions is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Baby Sobek the Adorable with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and feral children. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.913 billion blelhefadklafes 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cairo. The average income tax rate is 7.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient blelhefadklafen economy, worth a remarkable 2,709 trillion Rexes 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, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 amazing 209,801 Rexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. SPode humbleD Minions's national animal is the Monitor lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Snekism.

SPode humbleD Minions is ranked 32,661st in the world and 21st in The League for Most Income Equality, scoring 69.62 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
