The Feudal Devolved Empire of Splena is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Splero Spleriia Kerano with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 7.03 billion Splenish enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yad Dili Lidi. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Splenish economy, worth a remarkable 1,745 trillion Splerins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 248,300 Splerins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Splena's national animal is the Winged Furred Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Splena is ranked 3,543rd in the world and 7th in South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.78 on the Human Development Index.
