The Federation of Sovern is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Kirkiv with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 8.57 billion Soverns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valis. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sovern economy, worth a remarkable 2,330 trillion Vores a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 271,963 Vores, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and savvy nightclub-goers know that structurally unsound venues sell the cheapest drinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sovern's national animal is the Velku Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sovern is ranked 38,651st in the world and 11th in Barbaria for Most Average, scoring 46.14 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
