“Optimism is the death of reality!”

The Republic of Socrateous is a massive, devout nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-working population of 3.031 billion enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Religion & Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8%. 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.
Socrateous's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high. Crime is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Socrateous's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the iPad.
