Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Horse Lords of The Spirit is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Spirit with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 11.86 billion Spiritians 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, although Welfare and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spirit City. The average income tax rate is 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Spiritian economy, worth 324 trillion Gold Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 27,362 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 Secularism.

The Spirit is ranked 53,291st in the world and 161st in Spiritus for Healthiest Citizens, with 3.3 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
