The Just A Lore's Just a Nation of Imperial Sobek is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Marquis Giacomo Keller-Strotz with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 17.05 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 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Sobeki economy, worth 960 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 56,315 Sobeki Tresks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Sobek City" t-shirts. 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 42,531st in the world and 2nd in Be Gay Do Crimes for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.2 law-abiding acts per hour.
