The Heavenly Kingdom of Holy Spire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Kaguya Julii-narag with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.66 billion Spireans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solium Deae. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spirean economy, worth 457 trillion Ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,049 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, billions of Ducats are being blown on orbital weapons development, and most citizens in Holy Spire are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Spire's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of The Moon.

Holy Spire is ranked 75,297th in the world and 92nd in Wintreath for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 196,307 Standard Monetary Units.
