The Stratego Nation of Spion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Spion with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.493 billion Spionians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spion City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.9%.

The powerhouse Spionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,934 trillion Strategoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 90,003 Strategoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 282,245 per year while the poor average 21,990, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, the government is flooded with compensation requests, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spion's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Militarism.

Spion is ranked 37,782nd in the world and 25th in Vlaanderen for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,413.39 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
