The Incorporated States of So88er is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a Generally Amiable Fellow with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 37.375 billion So88erians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whole Inwon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient So88erian economy, worth an astonishing 15,512 trillion nutmeques a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 415,054 nutmeques, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. So88er's national animal is the flying pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ilken Fitherwop.

So88er is ranked 99th in the world and 1st in Great Britain and Ireland for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 17,847.06 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
