Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Matriarchy of Sosostris is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 8.065 billion Sosostrians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, 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 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sosostrisian economy, worth 368 trillion Futures a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,657 Futures, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", and students cut up leftover Futures during Arts and Crafts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 115th in World Alliance and 131,150th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -2 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
