The Greater Realm 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 quiet, industrious population of 10.885 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sobek City. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sobeki economy, worth 609 trillion Sobeki Tresks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 56,006 Sobeki Tresks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches. 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 138,227th in the world and 7,061st in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 28.82 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
