The Democratic Republic of Sokala is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 563 million Sokalans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bondoc City. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Sokalan economy, worth 51.3 trillion Nihils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 91,143 Nihils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sokala's national animal is the Sokalan Red-nosed Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
