The Dictatorship of Spiruvania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lilith Ta Diktatora with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.792 billion Spiruvanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leadertopia. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Spiruvanian economy, worth 488 trillion Spiras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 175,014 Spiras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and most pop videos prominently feature the Spiruvanian flag. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spiruvania's national animal is the Winged-Serpent, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Spiruvania is ranked 165,698th in the world and 5,671st in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.35 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
