The Constitutional Monarchy of Great Sothos is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.841 billion Sothosians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hjortsbaek. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sothosian economy, worth 449 trillion Golden Falcons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,924 Golden Falcons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, Great Sothos's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, military funding has been stripped back, and a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Sothos's national animal is the Tri-Striped Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Sothos is ranked 246,435th in the world and 392nd in The Free Nations Region for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.68 crimes per hour.
