The Federal Republic of Sprykon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Muad'dib with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8.268 billion Sprykonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kronos. The average income tax rate is 64.6%.

The all-consuming Sprykonian economy, worth 968 trillion CHOAMS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,152 CHOAMS, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, the fate of the world literally rests on Muad'dib's fingers, billions of CHOAMS are being blown on orbital weapons development, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sprykon's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Imperial Truth.

Sprykon is ranked 95,180th in the world and 1,988th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49.78 on the Rand Index.
