The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 315 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.724 billion Spice Harvester 315ians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Administration, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Spice Harvester 315ian economy, worth 75.1 trillion spices a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 43,564 spices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Spice Harvester 315's national animal is the sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spice Harvester 315 is ranked 187,307th in the world and 9,006th in Chicken overlords for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -6.6 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
