The Kingdom of Outer Sparta is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Alexi Palas with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.649 billion Spartans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparta City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Spartan economy, worth a remarkable 7,706 trillion Sparts a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 436,627 Sparts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outer Sparta's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Outer Sparta is ranked 48th in the world and 1st in Europe for Most Cultured, scoring 912 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
