The Kingdom of Spunkland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Funk with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.136 billion Spunkishes are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spunky City. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spunklandian economy, worth 493 trillion good boy points a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,216 good boy points, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, and therapists can always squeeze in another house-call. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spunkland's national animal is the Scary Fairy, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Disciples of Funk.

Spunkland is ranked 12,046th in the world and 676th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.04 on the Human Development Index.
