The Queendom of Sprose is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Princess Cassandra with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, infamous sell-swords, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cheerful population of 14.534 billion Spirosens enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CyristiŽ. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Spirosen economy, worth a remarkable 3,026 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, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. 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 208,250 Diamont-Nails, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs. 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 207,539th in the world and 12th in Banaanvraag for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -38.13 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
