The Pot head patriarchy of Soulia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Selassie II with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.608 billion Soulians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Welfare and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nirvanna. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
The government violently surpresses separatist movements, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soulia's national animal is the Black Panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the bags of weed spliff.
