OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of SOAD Music is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Serj Tankian with an even hand, and remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.002 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 91%, 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.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, the government is flooded with compensation requests, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem, 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 1,051st in 10000 Islands and 120,677th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -1,210 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
