The Dictatorship of Free Soundia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 294 million Free Soundians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominaria. The average income tax rate is 37.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Free Soundian economy, worth 25.3 trillion Sounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Retail, Tourism, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 85,963 Sounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, where there's smoke there's the Free Soundian Forestry Department, Leader signs the laws but abides by none of them, and the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year. Crime is totally unknown. Free Soundia's national animal is the Thylacine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Free Soundia is ranked 76,175th in the world and 2,868th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 73.62 Years.
