Location: The North Pacific



Population752 million


The Community of Sockia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 752 million Sockians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sockian economy, worth 23.5 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 31,269 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sockia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sockia is ranked 43,521st in the world and 2,147th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,100.08 Tourists Per Hour.
