The Dystopian Nightmare Horde of Spanelsko is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Supreme Lord Khan with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.618 billion Spanelskoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Askana. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Spanelskoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,926 trillion Arma 3s 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 442,240 Arma 3s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, and billions of Arma 3s are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Spanelsko's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of Chaos.

Spanelsko is ranked 11,511th in the world and 12th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Secular, with 90 Atheism Rate.
