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 remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 4.059 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medical Lake. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Federation of Spokanean economy, worth 576 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 142,125 Spokeos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer, and cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park. 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 220,242nd in the world and 186th in Lands End for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -14.39 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
