The Socialist Kingdom of The Spicha is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nobleman Waw Aumakua with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.374 billion Spichiis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Machita Square. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Spichan economy, worth 263 trillion Tachies 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 110,892 Tachies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Spicha's national animal is the Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Spicha is ranked 75,412th in the world and 26th in Conf of Traditional Socialist Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
