Clan Spaniel

Population628 million



The United Socialist States of Clan Spaniel is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed population of 628 million Clanners are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gienah. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Clan Spanielian economy, worth 72.9 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,054 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Clan Spanielian as 'your finger, you fool', 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, and concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clan Spaniel's national animal is the fenrir, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Clan Spaniel is ranked 64,648th in the world and 3,438th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,242.66 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
