Clan Spaniel

Population2.393 billion

LeaderIlKhan Nicholas Keresky
FaithCult of Kerensky


The Deep Periphery of Clan Spaniel is a massive, safe nation, ruled by IlKhan Nicholas Keresky with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.393 billion Clanners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gienah. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clan Spanielian economy, worth 405 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 significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 169,268 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, and veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations. Crime is totally unknown. Clan Spaniel's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Kerensky.

Clan Spaniel is ranked 105,963rd in the world and 4,936th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,383.56 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
