The Confederated Empire of Sovereign California is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Selene Dévnostraéva with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.016 billion Californians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles ― Los Angeles NCD. The average income tax rate is 18.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Californian economy, worth a remarkable 9,601 trillion Sovereigns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 274,206 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Californians must literally pay their respects to hear from their political representatives, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and Sovereign California is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sovereign California's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Dévnostraévism.

Sovereign California is ranked 13,241st in the world and 1st in Earth Prime for Most Politically Free, scoring 88.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
