The Republic of Spoela is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hughes Martin with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.219 billion Spoelans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arenfjord. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spoelan economy, worth 131 trillion Kronos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,736 Kronos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, the 'maybe not shock and awe' foreign policy initiative is showing promise, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Kronos of property damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spoela's national animal is the Seevaasto, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spoela is ranked 8,527th in the world and 20th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,749.63 Tourists Per Hour.
