Spades is a growing, developing, and old nation at 344 days old with citizens primarily of Mixed ethnicity whose religion is Christianity. It is a backwards nation when it comes to technology and many refer to it unkindly as a 'Third World Nation'. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Spades work diligently to produce Water and Oil as tradable resources for their nation. It is an aggressive country that some say has an itch for war. It believes nuclear weapons are necessary for the security of its people. Plans are on the way within Spades to open new rehabilitation centers across the nation and educate its citizens of the dangers of drug use. Spades allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Free speech is considered taboo in Spades. Spades has no definite foreign aid at this time. Spades will not make deals with another country that has a history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
Spades is an old nation founded in 1913 by the royal Spades family and have been ruled by the Spades family ever since. Spades is currently in the reign of the 3rd Joker King. The current Joker King: Ashura Novon Spades. Spades was once part of the alliance Sparta, before unfortunate timing of flooding in Spades and the Spartan Purges. They proceeded to attack Spades, and cause major damage and ruin that still haunts Spadens today. When the flooding was gone, and all things were said and done, Ashura found his nation in a worst shape than he could ever have imagined. It was in Anarchy and completely bill locked. It took over 10 million dollars (which was a lot for the nation that had lost so much money during the raids anyway)s. to fix everything that Sparta had caused during The Joker King's absence. The Joker King swore that he'd never let any person suffer the same fate as he had, so he began The Philosophers as a safe haven for all nations. Ashura is the founder and current The Boss of The Philosophers.
