The Deep Periphery of Clan Spaniel is a massive, safe nation, ruled by IlKhan Nicholas Keresky with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory vegetarianism, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.195 billion Clanners love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gienah. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clan Spanielian economy, worth 347 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,343 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents. Crime is totally unknown. Clan Spaniel's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Kerensky.

Clan Spaniel is ranked 176,805th in the world and 8,133rd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73 on the Rand Index.
