The Politeia of Sophisica is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.596 billion Sophisicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnholdtica. The average income tax rate is 37.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sophisican economy, worth 492 trillion gnosoes a year, is fairly 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 88,042 gnosoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Sophisica as a reminder of their "special relationship", and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime is totally unknown. Sophisica's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sophisica is ranked 41,714th in the world and 1,138th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 28.7 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
