The corporate state of SPOP

The Conglomerate of The corporate state of SPOP is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Director Todd Howard with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.412 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 622 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 141,061 Coinages, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. 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 180,117th in the world and 21st in Selene for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -5.48 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
