The Republic of Soudjourne is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Serenity-Rose Hamilton with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 840 million Soudjournese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klae. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Soudjournese economy, worth 67.7 trillion Sojs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,613 Sojs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, and going on a diet invalidates your passport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soudjourne's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Soudjourne is ranked 15,550th in the world and 69th in The Free Nations Region for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,480.77 Tourists Per Hour.
