The Ghosts with the Most of Spooky13 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Betelgeuse with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, devout population of 4.848 billion Spooky13ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.3%.

The all-consuming Spooky13ian economy, worth 465 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,090 deniers, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spooky13's national animal is the kiwi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Spooky13 is ranked 45,065th in the world and 8th in Pallaith for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 9.92 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
