The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 40.745 billion Spanners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Spanner economy, worth an astonishing 11,864 trillion spannies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 291,188 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Span is ranked 72nd in the world and 5th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 10,817.84 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
