The Republic of Spearos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Denis Karosven with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 2.379 billion Spearosians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talosekos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Spearosian economy, worth 449 trillion Spearos Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 189,141 Spearos Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Spearos's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Twiceism.

Spearos is ranked 98,517th in the world and 3,924th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 53.74 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
