The Republic of Sparanoda is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 587 million Sparanodans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athenta. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sparanodan economy, worth 70.5 trillion Sparan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 120,088 Sparan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, the Sparanodan Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sparanoda's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sparanoda is ranked 127,948th in the world and 143rd in Cape of Good Hope for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 569 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
