The Queendom of Sprose is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Princess Cassandra with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 21.721 billion Spirosens are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CyristiŽ. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Spirosen economy, worth a remarkable 4,970 trillion Diamont-Nails a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Book Publishing. 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 amazing 228,815 Diamont-Nails, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is totally unknown. Sprose's national animal is the Huge Treasure-Eating Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ignorance.

Sprose is ranked 283,856th in the world and 18th in Banaanvraag for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -31.11 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
