The Revived Democracy of Spontania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ompong with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.349 billion Spontanians 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Yard. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Spontanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,862 trillion Nullems a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 223,067 Nullems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, bike rage is all the rage, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spontania's national animal is the mutant fire-fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is mutantism.

Spontania is ranked 24,474th in the world and 699th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 549.20858600628 Days.
