The corporate state of SPOP

Population4.959 billion

LeaderDirector Todd Howard
FaithSaint of Spopia


The Conglomerate of The corporate state of SPOP is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Director Todd Howard with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.959 billion SPOPian are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HighTower. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse SPOPian economy, worth 703 trillion Coinages a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,837 Coinages, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The corporate state of SPOP's national animal is the Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Saint of Spopia.

The corporate state of SPOP is ranked 26,669th in the world and 1st in Selene for Largest Black Market, with 10.7 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
