The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 14 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, aversion to nipples, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.442 billion Spice Harvester 14ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.2%.

The powerhouse Spice Harvester 14ian economy, worth 137 trillion spices a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 95,475 spices, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 280,145 per year while the poor average 25,650, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Billions of spices are being poured into a space program, oracles predict landslide victories for Leader for the next 50 years, corporations are either above the law or corrupting it, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spice Harvester 14's national animal is the sandworm, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Spice Harvester 14 is ranked 128,485th in the world and 4,890th in Chicken overlords for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
