The Kingdom of Spectabalis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Arnon with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.699 billion Spectabalins 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 Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hespalon. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spectabalin economy, worth 337 trillion Specatas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,885 Specatas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that King Arnon is not a crook, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, and carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spectabalis's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Spectabalis is ranked 13,577th in the world and 44th in The Free Nations Region for Most Developed, scoring 87.32 on the Human Development Index.
