The Free Land of SOAD Music is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Serj Tankian with a fair hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 15.994 billion SOAD Musicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 80th in 10000 Islands and 3,330th in the world for Best Weather, with 247 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
