The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 2 is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.438 billion Spice Harvester 2ians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 40.9%.

The all-consuming Spice Harvester 2ian economy, worth 94.9 trillion spices a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,961 spices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

A handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Spice Harvester 2's national animal is the sandworm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Spice Harvester 2 is ranked 73,727th in the world and 3,370th in Chicken overlords for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,004.45 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
