The Dark Fantasy of Sounq is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kanye West with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.793 billion Sounqians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sounqian economy, worth 259 trillion Yeezies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 144,776 Yeezies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. Crime is totally unknown. Sounq's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yeezus.

Sounq is ranked 20,962nd in the world and 1,063rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 80.69 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
