The Good Vibes of The Spirit is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Spirit with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 17.423 billion Spiritans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spirit City. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Spiritian economy, worth 465 trillion Gold Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,711 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, international tensions are high as The Spirit threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in The Spirit to be bombproof. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Spirit's national animal is the Wind Spirit and its national religion is The Booty.

The Spirit is ranked 104,270th in the world and 85th in Spiritus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.76 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
