The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 367 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory vegetarianism, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.708 billion Spice Harvester 367ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 43.3%.

The Spice Harvester 367ian economy, worth 95.6 trillion spices a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 55,980 spices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, a massive campaign is underway to ensure the race of Spice Harvester 367 remains pure, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, and the government has returned all business to private ownership. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spice Harvester 367's national animal is the sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Spice Harvester 367 is ranked 29,808th in the world and 9,174th in Chicken overlords for Nudest, with 207.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
