The Rogue Nation of The Plague Spoon is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.87 billion Plague Spoonians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Industry and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The thriving Plague Spoonian economy, worth 563 trillion Silvers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 25,751 Silvers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 74,577 per year while the poor average 7,046, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, public nudity is compulsory, divorce is illegal, and voting is voluntary. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Plague Spoon's national animal is the Splortypus, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Plague Spoon is ranked 37,820th in the world and 9th in Middle Earth for Most Avoided, scoring 98.1 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
