The Ill-Conceived Notion of The Spruce Goose is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 38.162 billion Spruce Gooseans 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 large, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.8%.

The thriving Spruce Goosean economy, worth a remarkable 2,320 trillion boondoggles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 60,818 boondoggles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 234,847 per year while the poor average 10,817, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

The nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Pepsi and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied loony old hermit, and there have been reports of people marrying housepets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Spruce Goose's national animal is the hermit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Spruce Goose is ranked 239,683rd in the world and 3rd in Canadian Goose Land for Most Politically Free, scoring zero on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
