The People's Republic of SPES DOCTRINA is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 282 million SPES DOCTRINAians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant SPES DOCTRINAian economy, worth 2.65 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 9,394 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Increasing numbers of children in SPES DOCTRINA have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, SPES DOCTRINAian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Peacefull Lion, and cute fluffy little Leaders are increasingly popular exotic pets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SPES DOCTRINA's national animal is the Peacefull Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SPES DOCTRINA is ranked 191,491st in the world and 8,600th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -28.71 on the Hayek Index.
