The Dictatorship of Spiruvania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lilith Ta Diktatora with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.35 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 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Spiruvanian economy, worth 404 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 172,269 Spiras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Spiruvania recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and terrorists who are 17th cousins with the ex-wives of half-brothers of citizens are now exempt from the immigration ban. 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 37,699th in the world and 1,113th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 4.27 Bank.
