The I'm not Spaceania of Spaceania2 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.847 billion Spaceani2n spasiddles are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Spaceani2n spadidle economy, worth 31.4 trillion Spaceleos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,996 Spaceleos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spaceania2's national animal is the Spadi spadoos, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spaceania2 is ranked 144,893rd in the world and 5,576th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 40.86 on the Human Development Index.
