The Protectorate of Spoox is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.449 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Spooxian economy, worth 28.1 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 169,084th in the world and 7,436th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with zero Cheeks Per Square Mile.
