Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Land of SOAD Music is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Serj Tankian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 16.933 billion SOAD Musicians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped SOAD Musician economy, worth 841 trillion drams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 49,698 drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, soldiers have swapped their uniforms for prisonwear, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SOAD Music's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

SOAD Music is ranked 167th in 10000 Islands and 9,476th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
