The Great Empire of Splena is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Splero Spleriia Kerano with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.781 billion Splenish have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yad Dili Lidi. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Splenish economy, worth 544 trillion Splerins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 195,881 Splerins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and the single fish caught by Splenish fishers last year is cited as evidence of Splena's thriving fisheries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Splena's national animal is the Azure Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Splena is ranked 168,934th in the world and 6,319th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 0.99 Atheism Rate.
