The Principality of Sparhawkia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 926 million Sparhawkians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sparhawkian economy, worth 86.9 trillion squirreals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 93,841 squirreals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and Sparhawkia City's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sparhawkia's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sparhawkia is ranked 10,314th in the world and 138th in Europeia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.76 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
