The Beautiful Peninsula of Spoolland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dwayne Johnson with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.401 billion Spools are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armored Ostrich. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Spoolish economy, worth 165 trillion Dolla Bills 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. 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 impressive 118,415 Dolla Bills, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People boast about their low income on their dating profiles, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spoolland's national animal is the Ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Spoolland is ranked 39,413th in the world and 170th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,241.33 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
