The Commonwealth of Spyglassia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 613 million Spyglassians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 60.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Spyglassian economy, worth 24.2 trillion Goblets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 39,404 Goblets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, Leader's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spyglassia's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spyglassia is ranked 46,971st in the world and 17th in Soviet Democracy for Most Devout, with 549.1 Prayers Per Hour.
