The Crowned Republic of Spearwald is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by HM King Gerald C Mildora with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.626 billion Spearwaldians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emery Hill. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Spearwaldian economy, worth 944 trillion Spearwald Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 167,802 Spearwald Yuan, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 567,925 per year while the poor average 36,640, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spearwald's national animal is the Earth Viper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Adonai.

Spearwald is ranked 19,159th in the world and 7th in Emery for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,581.94 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
