The Deep Periphery of Clan Spaniel is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by IlKhan Nicholas Keresky with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.632 billion Clanners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gienah. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clan Spanielian economy, worth 460 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 174,948 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, and the nation refuses to provide international aid. Crime is totally unknown. Clan Spaniel's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Kerensky.

Clan Spaniel is ranked 210,769th in the world and 9,491st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -177.11 on the Hayek Index.
