The Allied States of Sparkletea is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 522 million Sparkleteans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Sparkletean economy, worth 11.6 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 22,141 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, euthanasia is illegal, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, and politicians can't accept birthday presents from their own children. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sparkletea's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
