The Republic of Soulscard30 is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 515 million Soulscard30ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 24.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Soulscard30ian economy, worth 31.7 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,468 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", newspapers may not print any negative stories about the government, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Soulscard30's national animal is the crocodile, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Soulscard30 is ranked 148,246th in the world and 14th in Testregionia for Fattest Citizens, with 9.88 Obesity Rate.
