The Politeia of Sophisica is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.999 billion Sophisicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnholdtica. The average income tax rate is 26.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sophisican economy, worth 341 trillion gnosoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,316 gnosoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied owl. Crime is totally unknown. Sophisica's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sophisica is ranked 10,226th in the world and 274th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 83.77 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
