The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 394 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, ubiquitous missile silos, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.504 billion Spice Harvester 394ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.7%.

The strong Spice Harvester 394ian economy, worth 382 trillion spices a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Gambling, Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 84,870 spices, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 278,781 per year while the poor average 19,376, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

People are careful to avoid hyperbolising that they'd "rather die" than support Leader, citizens select which government department gets their income tax spices each year, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and Leader's Twitcher account is once again only used for bragging about the government's accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spice Harvester 394's national animal is the sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spice Harvester 394 is ranked 189,142nd in the world and 16,928th in Chicken overlords for Highest Drug Use, scoring 39 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
