The Protectorate of Spoox is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.395 billion Spooxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Industry, Public Transport, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Spooxian economy, worth 30.5 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,458 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spoox's national animal is the snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spoox is ranked 162,517th in the world and 7,611th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 147.21 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
