The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 355 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, hatred of cheese, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.396 billion Spice Harvester 355ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.6%.

The powerhouse Spice Harvester 355ian economy, worth 95.3 trillion spices a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 68,266 spices, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 359,044 per year while the poor average 6,928, a ratio of 51.8 to 1.

Family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Spice Harvester 355's national animal is the sandworm, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Spice Harvester 355 is ranked 91,984th in the world and 491st in Chicken overlords for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 33.62 Effective Tax Rate.
