The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 3D5 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.101 billion Spice Harvester 3D5ians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Administration and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The very strong Spice Harvester 3D5ian economy, worth 138 trillion spices a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 65,748 spices, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 292,402 per year while the poor average 9,205, a ratio of 31.8 to 1.

Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, holiday gift-giving is often peppered with songs of praise to morally-questionable televangelists, the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, and biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Spice Harvester 3D5's national animal is the sandworm, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Spice Harvester 3D5 is ranked 75,530th in the world and 3,634th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,148.49 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
