The Sparolanchilland

The Republic of The Sparolanchilland is a small, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 40 million Sparolanchillandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Sparolanchillandian economy, worth 170 billion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 4,272 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sparolanchilland's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Sparolanchilland is ranked 92,076th in the world and 66th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring -30.36 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
