The Republic of Spoliruvillii is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.955 billion Spoliruvilliians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 40.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Spoliruvilliian economy, worth 19.5 trillion pesos 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. 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 9,985 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spoliruvillii's national animal is the tiger.

Spoliruvillii is ranked 1,192nd in the world and 1st in Chicken overlords for Most Authoritarian, with 12,121.34 milliStalins.
