Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Matriarchy of Sosostris is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 9.312 billion Sosostrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenicia. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sosostrisian economy, worth 406 trillion Futures a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,664 Futures, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the government pours millions of Futures into rehabilitation programs annually, discarded pennies litter the streets, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sosostris's national animal is the Phoenician Sailor, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sosostris is ranked 33,821st in the world and 48th in World Alliance for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,368.59 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
