The Republic of Psychotic Souls is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by a Witchdoctor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 21.842 billion Psychotic Soulsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mania. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Psychotic Soulsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,789 trillion dunbars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,714 dunbars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, bars are packed at all hours, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Psychotic Souls's national animal is the platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Amyism.

Psychotic Souls is ranked 24,686th in the world and 654th in the Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 199.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
