Population2.73 billion



The Republic of Soirwren is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 2.73 billion Soirwrenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soigné. The average income tax rate is 54.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soirwrenian economy, worth 229 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 83,910 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Soirwrenian pirates, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Soirwren's border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soirwren's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Soirwren is ranked 18,849th in the world and 540th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 251.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
