The Imperial dominion of Springlocks is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Benita Garryliny of El ducthe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 1.124 billion Imperialsprings 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlina. The average income tax rate is 27.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Springlocksian economy, worth 53.8 trillion Lockes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,900 Lockes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Springlocksian Navy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Springlocks's national animal is the spring bonnie, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Springlocks is ranked 251,217th in the world and 9,619th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -55.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
