The Lord Lore's Hive Mind of Imperial Sobek is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marquis Giacomo Keller-Strotz with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The devout population of 15.271 billion Sobekan are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sobek City. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Sobeki economy, worth 857 trillion Sobeki Tresks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is 56,133 Sobeki Tresks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Sobek's national animal is the Isalian Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imperial Sobek is ranked 45,427th in the world and 4th in Be Gay Do Crimes for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 3,284.86 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
