The Commonwealth of Distro-Spartica is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Cyrus with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 854 million Sparticans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ingzington. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spartican economy, worth 88.8 trillion Etas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 104,013 Etas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Distro-Spartica, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Distro-Spartica's national animal is the Quail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Distro-Spartica is ranked 89,608th in the world and 3,818th in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 706.55 milliStalins.
