The Federal Republic of Spamwich is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zaphod with a fair hand, and renowned for its feral children, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.875 billion Spamwans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dollar City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Spamwichian economy, worth a remarkable 1,879 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 319,844 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,973,696 per year while the poor average 3,159, a ratio of 941 to 1.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, birth rates have hit an all-time low, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Dollar City to enjoy their national art, and nose plugs are the latest Spamwichian fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Spamwich's national animal is the Ratzilla, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Occamism.

Spamwich is ranked 144th in the world and 5th in the Pacific for Most Armed, with 56.64 Weapons Per Person.
