The Riparian Thalassocracy of Saspian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Xhãnxhamãn Kojôtl Ketzáltletl Átìl with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.886 billion Saspianese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amisquoixhi. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.
The powerhouse Saspianese economy, worth a remarkable 1,673 trillion écus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 140,826 écus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, gambling is outlawed, and passengers often cause a stink on public transport. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saspian's national animal is the coyote, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Xhamanicism.
