Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Matriarchy of Sosostris is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 8.913 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 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sosostrisian economy, worth 401 trillion Futures a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,022 Futures, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, and conspiracy theorists allege Phoenicia's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. 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 8,855th in the world and 21st in World Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,144.4 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
