The Kingdom of Sodor and Mann is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Robert IV with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 1.589 billion Sudrians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suddery. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sudrian economy, worth 237 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 149,308 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, King Robert IV is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, and the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sodor and Mann's national animal is the Sodor Warbler, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Angilicanisim.

Sodor and Mann is ranked 807th in the world and 126th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 165 Valid Endorsements.
