The Protectorate of Spice Harvester 91 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.746 billion Spice Harvester 91ians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.6%.

The powerhouse Spice Harvester 91ian economy, worth 126 trillion spices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 72,661 spices, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 500,106 per year while the poor average 3,759, a ratio of 133 to 1.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, white privilege is a real thing, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spice Harvester 91's national animal is the sandworm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Spice Harvester 91 is ranked 37,037th in the world and 1,761st in Chicken overlords for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,449.26 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
