The Republic of -Sonic- is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sonic with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.849 billion -Sonic-ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sonic. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient -Sonic-ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,662 trillion Gems a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,890 Gems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference. Crime is totally unknown. -Sonic-'s national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zuiunism.

-Sonic- is ranked 20,531st in the world and 707th in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 70.24 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
