The SP DOOM of SpenZerous is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its national health service, enforced nudity, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.55 billion Doom nuggets enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DOOMSDAY VILLE. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient SpenZerousian economy, worth a remarkable 1,256 trillion Green papers a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,530 Green papers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and the tightness of border controls in SpenZerous leave a little to be desired. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SpenZerous's national animal is the Electric spitting three headed serpent, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is THREE FINGER-RING FEVER.

SpenZerous is ranked 656th in the world and 2nd in The Planet X for Nudest, with 1,213 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
