The Dictatorship of Spiruvania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lilith Ta Diktatora with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.824 billion Spiruvanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leadertopia. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Spiruvanian economy, worth 489 trillion Spiras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 173,344 Spiras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, national magistrates in Leadertopia are overwhelmed with cases of petty larceny and attempted witchcraft, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, and patriots insist that size does matter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spiruvania's national animal is the Winged-Serpent, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Spiruvania is ranked 153,313th in the world and 5,042nd in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.46 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
