The Armed Republic of Sprinkler is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Adolf Einstein with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.582 billion Sprinklerians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purgatory. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sprinklerian economy, worth a remarkable 4,416 trillion slaves a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 460,879 slaves, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,287,133 per year while the poor average 4,524, a ratio of 947 to 1.

Politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, and there'll be no comeback tour for many former boy bands. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sprinkler's national animal is the subhuman, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sprinkler is ranked 12,302nd in the world and 278th in the South Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 7,044.24 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
