Empire of Spartaca

Population8.746 billion

LeaderAlexander Xerxes


The Democratic Republic of Empire of Spartaca is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander Xerxes with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.746 billion Spartacans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sillimarilia. The average income tax rate is 94.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Empire of Spartacan economy, worth a remarkable 1,290 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,546 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, fat-shaming is now public policy, the statue in the Schwarzenegger Plaza has a solar panel for a hat, and gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Spartaca's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jediism.

Empire of Spartaca is ranked 2,758th in the world and 103rd in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 22,477.29 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
