The Dominion of Sparsdan is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Dadoun with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, flagrant waste-dumping, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 958 million Humans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guinness. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Human economy, worth 119 trillion beers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 125,155 beers, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

A new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorus, begun the Clone Wars have, parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money, and Dadoun has just been declared ruler of Sparsdan in an international press conference. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sparsdan's national animal is the chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sparsdan is ranked 187,214th in the world and 389th in The Free Nations Region for Most Primitive, scoring -224 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
