The Federal Republic of Spamwich is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zaphod with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, triple-decker prams, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.667 billion Spamwans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dollar City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Spamwichian economy, worth a remarkable 1,423 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 305,093 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,831,438 per year while the poor average 3,079, a ratio of 919 to 1.

Politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, public enemies often walk home with spotless garments and crime records, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, and pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Spamwich's national animal is the Ratzilla, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Occamism.

Spamwich is ranked 212,688th in the world and 6,840th in the Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 3,079.31 Standard Monetary Units.
