The The Holy Empire of The Federation of Spokane is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Harrison Harold Charles Grant II with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.987 billion Spokanites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medical Lake. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Federation of Spokanean economy, worth 289 trillion Spokeos 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 145,459 Spokeos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Federation of Spokane's national animal is the Rainbow Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pastafarism.

The Federation of Spokane is ranked 14,832nd in the world and 30th in Lands End for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 301.53 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
