The Democratic Socialist Union of Sonna is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Imperial Chairperson Masu Kan with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.18 billion Sonnans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shilin. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sonnan economy, worth a remarkable 2,915 trillion fanrongs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 239,372 fanrongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", and citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sonna's national animal is the awong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sonna is ranked 143,940th in the world and 116th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Black Market, with 159 billion Standard Monetary Units.
