The Alplands of Sponsertivity is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.144 billion Sponsertitulites 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grudgemort. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sponsertivityian economy, worth 587 trillion Silver Shingles a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,169 Silver Shingles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sponsertivity's national animal is the camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Sponsertivity is ranked 126,369th in the world and 3,799th in Balder for Rudest Citizens, with 47.93 insults per minute.
