The United Democratic Empire of So Pep is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by James Attendant MP with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.93 billion So Peppians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pepsia. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient So Peppian economy, worth 417 trillion Peppian Pounds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 142,445 Peppian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The news is showing footage of James Attendant MP bullying an old man to the point of tears, nude art is becoming wildly popular, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and students in So Pep's schools rarely attend their classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. So Pep's national animal is the Peppian Feather-Bellied Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Peppian Judaism.

So Pep is ranked 27,343rd in the world and 11th in Odrya for Most Patriotic, with 29.35 flags saluted per person per day.
