The Free Land of SOAD Music is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Serj Tankian with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 16.476 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, artists are pillars of society, SOAD Music's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. SOAD Music's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the dram.

SOAD Music is ranked 196th in 10000 Islands and 9,069th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 3 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
