The Principality of Sparhawkia is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.397 billion Sparhawkians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sparhawkian economy, worth 195 trillion squirreals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 81,539 squirreals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have tenure, a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, students do more community service than homework, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 225,221st in the world and 577th in Europeia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9.17 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
