The Free Land of SOAD Music is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Serj Tankian with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 16.694 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 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped SOAD Musician economy, worth 705 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 42,281 drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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 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.
