The Federation of Sovern is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Wilkiv with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.057 billion Soverns are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sovern economy, worth a remarkable 1,941 trillion Vores a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 275,176 Vores, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', Sovern's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians. 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 14,600th in the world and 24th in Barbaria for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,379.82 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
