The United Tribes of Sonnveld is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 21.922 billion Sonnveldak 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.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shining Circle. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.
The Sonnveldische economy, worth a remarkable 3,523 trillion sonns a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,716 sonns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
The criminal underworld is awash with sausage smuggling, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and Sonnveld's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sonnveld's national animal is the Black Alphyn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
