The United Socialist States of Span is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by M Shobacus Maz with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 36.34 billion Spanners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maz. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Spanner economy, worth a remarkable 7,540 trillion spannies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 207,484 spannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, tourists call Spanner beach towns "the fine coastline", and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime is totally unknown. Span's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Span is ranked 40th in the world and 1st in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 78,139.02 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
